“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord” Colossians 3:23
Guided by faith, with an understanding that we have all been given different talents by God, we strive for excellence in everything we do. We believe every person has talents within them. As such, we nurture confidence and aspiration, supporting each other to work with all our hearts, to become the best that we can be. This truly makes St John’s a school ‘Where talent grows’.
"Your mission statement of ‘Where talent grows’ is evident in pupils’ engagement and achievement. The school celebrates the talents of each child through sporting activities, youth speaking competitions, ‘praise’ assemblies and myriad extra-curricular clubs. Pupils are confident and eloquent in discussions. They are developing into positive young citizens as a result of the high-quality education and guidance that they receive." Ofsted 2017.
The Headteacher is Melanie Walker, and the Chair of Governors is Mike Akerman.
Love Music Trust
This year Love Music Trust commissioned Jay Stannard to compose a piece of music to celebrate overcoming the challenges of Covid-19. This was then taught to Class 4 at St John's who took part, along with other children in Cheshire East, in a project to produce a music video with LMT ensembles performing.
The enterprise was created, rehearsed and recorded during the pandemic and is testament to the positive 'can do' attitude of the pupils.
We were thrilled to be a part of this programme and hope you enjoy 'Back to Life', featuring the children of St John's. The video can be accessed via the following link: https://youtu.be/aoKLIjZR0Vc
