What the school says...

Mr David Griffiths takes over as Headmaster in September 2015 following his time at St. John’s on-the-Hill as Deputy Head. Having trained at the University of Cardiff as a History teacher, his previous role was as Head of History for Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls. David leads St. John’s with the emphasis on the wrap around care for the child and their education. He firmly believes in open communication with parents, staff and governing bodies to ensure the overall development of each child is balanced and secure. David is married to Becky, a History teacher, and has two young children.

David Griffiths is pleased to welcome a new partner in the St. John’s strive for excellence as Dean Close, Cheltenham, take over ownership in 2015. This will enable the school to further improve their facilities whilst ensuring that the values and standards widely recognised continue to flourish at St. John’s on-the-Hill.
