Building and plan of school

Plan of school

Our school is built around the main building that was opened in 1972. As we have grown several extensions to the main building have been added as well as four external classroom blocks. The latest expansion took place during 2019 when three brand new reception classes were built. 

Our most recent building project was during the Summer and Autumn terms 2022 when we had some significant building work taking place in the main building as we upgraded a large 1970's open plan area into three brand new fully equipped classrooms.


We have 16 classes, school hall, break out rooms for small group work as well as a large playground and an extensive school field overlooking the Amber Valley countryside.

The below pictures are of the original building being built in the 1970's. If any one else has any photographs of the school being built, or of anything else to do with St. John's, that would be interesting to share, please contact the school and we'll post them online.


We have also added a slide show showing pictures of the extension work when the nursery was built in 2017 and reception classes weer built in 2019.
