Welcome to Great Marsden St John’s Primary School, a Church of England Academy

Hello and thank you for coming to visit us via our website.

Great Marsden St John’s is a one form entry Church of England Primary Academy, on the outskirts of Nelson. We are part of the Cidari family, which is a Church of England Multi Academy Trust.

As a Church of England Academy we have strong links with our local church, St John’s, and its community. The area of Nelson that we serve is rich and diverse which we value and embrace through our skills based curriculum and the daily life of school.

Nurturing our young people to become the very best they can be is our daily mission.  Through our strong moral purpose, excellent teaching, good parental support and amazing children we fulfill this daily.
