Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to the West Grantham Academy St John’s website. We hope it will give you an insight into life at our Academy.

St John’s is a welcoming church school community, where there is a strong emphasis on caring for, supporting and listening to pupils. 

Our pupils at St John’s approach their work in a happy and enthusiastic manner.  The principle aim of the academy is to enable all children to learn and to reach their full potential throughout their time with us. We believe in fostering the holistic development of the child and we are committed to helping pupils to become lifetime learners.  In order to achieve this the academy sets clear expectations in terms of behaviour and work ethic.  All of our staff are committed in helping the pupils achieve and flourish in aspects of school life.

We provide an interesting, stimulating curriculum that responds to the needs of different learning styles and learners’ different needs.  We promote perseverance and independence in all lessons.  We continually celebrate and share our pupils’ successes.  You can find out more about the curriculum by clicking on our year group pages.  We also endeavour to equip pupils with the skills to become valuable members of the local community and to have aspirations for their futures. 

We believe that parental partnership is vital to ensuring the well-being and academic success of pupils. Parents and carers are an essential component of our school community.  Throughout our website you will see ways in which parents can help support their children in their learning to re-enforce the work done at school.

Hopefully this website will answer many of the questions you may have about the academy.  If you have any further queries at all then feel free to ask me via the Headteacher Q and A section on the website or to contact the academy by email or phone.
