What the school says...
As Head of College, it is a privilege to lead such a unique and exceptional school. At St John’s College, we pride ourselves on the academic success of each individual student and our outstanding pastoral care. We are a Christian school but an inclusive community, welcoming students of all beliefs.
We are not selective by academic ability and are able to offer a rounded education, providing opportunities for students through an extensive range of activities. We are also proud of our international links and, as the only independent Boarding School in Portsmouth, we offer a truly international education experience from which all our students, day and boarding, benefit.
For me, one of the most outstanding aspects about the College is the quality of community spirit, based on positive relationships between students and staff. I passionately believe that we develop the talents of our students and create confident young people for the future, and this is a vital ingredient of our success. This ties in with our College motto – Per laborem ad Honorem (through work to honour), where all members of our community are encouraged to give their best in all activities.
There are many unique elements to St John’s College and you will get a good sense of our academic results, facilities and co-curricular opportunities from reading more in the different sections of this website. However, to truly appreciate what we can offer and to experience the inclusive community in which our students thrive, I invite you to join us at our next Open Morning or alternatively book a private tour.
The College was founded in 1908 by a Lasallian community of brothers and established according to the principles of John Baptist De La Salle, the patron saint of teachers. Today, although, we are no longer part of the De la Salle trust, we remain true to our Lasallian values, providing an education based on respect for all, quality relationships and an inclusive, collaborative community.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family to St John’s College. ...Read more
