St John’s on-the-Hill Preparatory School is a co-educational day and boarding school for children aged 7 – 13.

The school is set in beautiful enclosed grounds overlooking the picturesque river Wye, in Chepstow. With 180 pupils, the school is small enough to allow everyone to know one another and get fully involved in school life.

St John’s offers superb co-educational schooling with very small classes.

It has an excellent reputation for academic achievement, with a 100% success record at Common Entrance as well as a huge number of scholarships to senior schools. With impressive academic results and excellent links to the best senior schools, St John’s pupils are in demand.

The school has a remarkable reputation for sport and drama. St John’s provides a wonderful spectrum of extra-curricular activities and children have ample opportunity to develop responsibility, independence and leadership skills. Alongside their education, children are taught to respect themselves and each other, giving them morals and principles that secure St John’s in their hearts for life.

The word ‘community’ is often used by schools, but in St John’s case it has real meaning. Come and visit us and experience first-hand our family orientated school which is full of fun and happiness. Our talented staff genuinely want the best for the children and work tirelessly to achieve it.

Recently, St John’s joined forces with Dean Close, an outstanding co-educational school in Cheltenham. The amalgamation of the two schools unlocks new investment into St John’s not only through its buildings but also in the educational and pastoral opportunities available.
