Welcome to St John's (CE) Primary Academy, Clifton
Finding the right school for your child to grow and thrive is of paramount importance to them and you. Therefore, please take the time to explore our website to gain an insight into the philosophy and values of our school.
As Principal of St John's, which was judged as an outstanding academy at our last Ofsted, I feel privileged to lead a school where we provide a safe, caring and fun environment for all our children to thrive and fulfil their potential.
Working together for the best outcomes for your child is something in which we all believe. Therefore, from the moment your child steps through the door, you will find the staff approachable and welcoming.
Mr Chapman, Principal.
