St John’s on-the-Hill has a long-standing association with the military and a number of our current and past boarders have come from military families. As such, we are acutely aware of the pressures and difficulties faced by pupils whose families are involved in active service. This experience is invaluable in helping us to provide the best possible support for our boarders and their families.
Close links with parents are essential, as well as ensuring that the arrangements between parents, families and school are flexible enough to meet their needs. Life in Old House offers children the structure and support they need to grow and flourish both in and out of the classroom. As house parents, we are passionate about our roles and proud of the fact that we know each pupil’s strengths and weaknesses, allowing us to offer the right help at the right times, while giving pupils the freedom and space to grow as individuals.
We are very proud of our pupils and the open and friendly atmosphere at St. John’s, so please do contact us if you would like to visit Old House, or speak to our house parents about boarding at St. John’s.
