Expansion Delayed to 2017

It is with regret Governors have had to take the decision not to increase the Reception intake to 60 pupils until Sept 2017.

The reason for this is that planning permission still has not been granted and Governors cannot therefore be assured that the additional classrooms will be ready in time.

The school appreciates this will be disappointing news for some prospective parents, but does not feel it can commit to offering places without the necessary consents in place to ensure the necessary accommodation is available.

The Governors remain fully committed to permanent expansion from 2017 onwards and will be working with Croydon Council to achieve this.

St John’s Primary School is a happy, caring school. We have much to celebrate and be proud of.


Within the context of Christian belief and practice, we aim to serve the community by providing an education of the highest quality. Faith is very important to us and we endeavour to live out our Christian values of Creativity, Honesty, Resilience, Independence, Supportiveness, Talents, Inclusion, Achievement and Neighbourliness in our everyday lives.

Most of all, it is our children who make St. John’s a special place, and we are proud of all their achievements. We work hard to foster a secure and enjoyable environment which excites, challenges and motivates each child, enabling them to reach their full potential.

St. John’s School is an inclusive community of children, staff, parents, governors, friends and colleagues. Everyone works together to provide the best quality education for all children and to equip them with the confidence to embrace our ever-changing world.

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our school. Our website is designed to provide some basic information about St. John’s. Should you require further information or would like to arrange a visit, do not hesitate to contact us.
