St. John’s C of E Primary School is a warm and friendly Church of England aided school for which St. John’s Church, through its Governors and Church Council, has considerable educational and financial responsibilities. The school itself caters for a maximum forty children in each of the year groups. We are based across two sites, foundation stage and key stage one are located at our site on Ashton Road East, and key stage two are located across the road, on James Street. The school was formed in September 2014, with the amalgamation of St. John's C of E Nursery and Infant School, with St. John's C of E Junior School.
