St John's Primary School has received approval from the Department for Education to proceed with opening a new church school in the heart of Watford. Planned to open in Sept 2016 with 60 Reception places, all families are welcome to apply for a place for their child when applications open in Autumn 2015. Our School will be rooted in the Christian heritage of educating our young people and supporting families, and the community will play a central role in the school's work. Our pupils will be encouraged to express their thoughts and ideas, questioning the world around them while respecting the opinions of others. Our School will teach the National Curriculum in exciting and creative ways, always underpinned with an ethos of knowledge and truth, honesty and selflessness which will allow our children to flourish as lifelong learners and good citizens in our ever growing and evolving world.
