A new School Admissions Code and School Admission Appeals Code came into force in February 2012, introducing the most radical changes to the school admissions system since 1870. It has since been updated in December 2014.

St. John the Evangelist is an ‘own admission authority’ under the Bath & Wells Multi Academy Trust

Prospective Parents Tours

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will not be able to offer full school tours at the moment, we will be offering small groups of socially distanced parent meetings which will take place in the school hall (the session will last approximately 40 minutes) where you will be able to:

  • Meet with our Head teacher, Ian Doswell
  • Find out about our “Strongly Good” school (OFSTED, May 2019)
  • Learn all about us – how we will care for, nurture and look after your child, and find out about our approaches to learning and teaching
  • See a short film presentation that will give you an idea of what the children think about the school
  • Hear from, and ask questions of, our Early Years staff.

The perfect opportunity to find out about our excellent provision and ask questions.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to social distancing requirements, only 1 adult per family to attend, we regret we cannot welcome pre-school age children (babies and toddlers) to these meetings.
