Our Mission Statement- Preparing the Way
Our Mission statement is inspired by our patron saint, St John the Baptist.
In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah:
“A voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him.’
John’s clothes were made of camel’s hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey. People went out to him from Jerusalem and all Judea and the whole region of the Jordan. ”
Matthew 3 v 1-5
During their time at St John’s we aim to prepare pupils in faith, in citizenship and in k so that they leave us ready to succeed in their next steps in life.
