St John the Baptist
RC Primary School

Live, Love, Learn in a Caring Catholic Community.


We are a small, friendly Catholic school of around 80 children. We are proud to have such a small number of pupils and we are fully committed to providing our children with many learning opportunities. Members of our community care for and value each other, much like a family.

We believe this provides the ideal environment for children to learn and grow. We take both Catholic and non-Catholic children whose parents are sympathetic to our Catholic ethos. Go to School Aims for more details on our admissions procedure.


At St. John’s, we have small class sizes, allowing us to ensure high standards of behaviour. We welcome both Catholic and non catholic families, and have places available throughout the school. Our pupils enjoy high levels of support. We believe that our student to staff ratio is one of our greatest resources, and the children benefit from the small groups they are taught in. We have a very good pass rate for the 11+ examination to get into Churston Ferrers Grammar School.

This website contains information about our school, however the best way to find out about us is to come and visit us with your child and meet our staff and children. You are most welcome to telephone and make an appointment.

Come and visit us and see our high-achieving, happy school community in action.
