“Welcome to Saint John Wall Catholic School. I hope that you decide to send your child to Saint John Wall. Our school is unique. Our children have great talents and abilities and our highly qualified and skilled team of teachers and support staff, work hard to ensure that they become the best that they can be.
"In July 2012 we were inspected by OFSTED who judged Saint John Wall to be a ‘Good’ school. The school serves the local area which is a multi-cultural community. As a Catholic school we have pupils who are Catholic, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Buddhist and other Christian groups. There are approximately forty to fifty languages spoken with different African languages, Asian languages and European languages. Pupil’s backgrounds are from thirty plus different countries from around the world. We value the diversity of the children in our school.
"This website will tell you more about what we have to offer. However, you are warmly invited to come and see for yourself how we work together as a learning community in this special area of the city".
I am now delighted to announce that Ofsted's overall judgement about the school is that Saint John Wall is a 'Good' school. The following quotation from the report sums up some of the real strengths of our school, "This is a good school which is permeated by a strong ethos for the welfare and progress of every student. As members of a harmonious community, students from diverse cultural backgrounds take a full part in the life of the school". This is truly a moment of great achievement in the school's history as this is the first time we have been judged to be 'Good' by Ofsted. May I take this opportunity to thank you as parents for the support you have offered to the school in the lead up to, and during, the OFSTED inspection? I hope that you will also join me in giving a big thank you to all the staff in the school who work so hard to provide such a good quality learning experience for all the children of the School.
