St John’s on-the-Hill Preparatory School aims to inspire its pupils to achieve a lifelong love of learning. We strive to equip each child with the skills and confidence to be an independent thinker, able to tackle a task either as an individual or as part of a group

We seek to develop the whole person in preparation for Senior School and beyond. Life at school is busy and it is extremely rewarding to see pupils apply themselves to a range of activities and tasks.Our goal is to meet the educational needs of a wide range of individual abilities and to provide an appropriate education for every child. The small class sizes and experienced Learning Support Department mean the school is able to extend the most able pupils to academic excellence, whilst supporting the less able in accessing the curriculum.
