Welcome to our school's website
Welcome to St John’s Church of England School - I am proud to be the Headteacher of St John’s Church of England School in Stanmore, a Voluntary Aided primary school with a great reputation and high standards. We offer something very special to our children; an excellent education in a secure, friendly and happy learning environment. The school is a lively caring community, supported by an energetic and committed staff. We currently have 420 pupils on roll from diverse groups in Harrow as well as neighbouring boroughs and we warmly welcome children – those of Christian faith, other faiths and of no faith to share our Christian Ethos which permeates and underpins everything we do here at St John’s. Our challenging curriculum is engaging for all, enabling our children to become independent learners and preparing them for the next step on their learning journey. We also see the importance in developing their abilities in other areas such as music and sport. Everyone at St John’s believes in our vision to make a difference………….. and we most certainly do. We are a very popular school in amazing surroundings on Stanmore Hill, please do come and see it for yourself. We welcome visitors on Tuesday mornings at 9.30am to see the school in action.

All souls orchestra
On Monday 6th March KS2 children were treated to a pre-concert visit by some of the musicians from All Souls Orchestra who will be taking part in Prom Praise. Caroline and her team gave an assembly to the whole of KS2 and then followed this with a workshop for those going to Prom Praise.
The team demonstrated their instruments and they asked quite complex questions which got the children thinking about how each instrument produces its sound. The children acted out a short part of the parable of the Lost Son, which is the theme for this years Prom Praise and they also taught the children a song that we will be singing on the evening.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable time and the children were all enthused about their forthcoming trip.
