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.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
