About St John's College

The school as a whole comprises a Day Nursery, a Junior School, a Senior School, and a Sixth Form. Together with the boarding accommodation these are all located in the centre of Southsea. The facilities for teaching and learning and for sports and other extra-curricular activities are of a very high standard. In addition, the school has 35 acres of games fields at Farlington on the city outskirts. St John’s is a wide-ability school. All children who may benefit from its curriculum are very welcome. The emphasis is placed on maximising the potential of every child, whatever that may be. Pupils are encouraged to challenge themselves, to aspire and to achieve. The excellent academic results gained at all levels speak for themselves. Specifically tailored and high quality support is available where pupils require some degree of assistance with their learning, or additional challenge. St John’s enjoys an outstanding reputation for its caring community life. The school is big enough to offer a busy, varied and engaging educational experience in every sense, but still small enough for every member of the school to be known and valued just for who they are (409 boys, 224 girls). Excellent pastoral care means that no known need goes unaddressed. The resident boarding community provides a real sense of cohesion and continuity within the shared life of the school, and the diversity of background and experience the boarders bring enriches the experience of everyone.
