ABOUT GREAT MARSDEN ST JOHN’S PRIMARY SCHOOL, C OF E ACADEMY

As members of staff and Governors, we believe that we are getting it right in providing a quality, holistic education for our children.  We aim to give them to roots to grow and the wings to fly with Jesus as our role model.

However, the true test is by asking those that we serve – the children and their parents.

Keeping children safe, happy and engaged in their learning is our daily mission. We know that by providing them with quality experiences at primary school we will set them up for high school and beyond.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like some more information about our school.
