Welcome to St John’s School, Sidmouth, Devon’s small independent school with a big heart, and perhaps a little too much of “a best kept secret”! With stunning vistas of the Jurassic coastline, 15 minutes’ walk from the sea front, surrounded by magnificent houses, gardens and moorland, we are truly in a privileged location and count our blessings every day. While the location is stunning, it is the students, families and staff of this remarkable school which make the difference, create an unrivalled atmosphere, and promote an extension of family life. The children recognise St John’s as their second home, their classmates as extended family and at the same time can reach out to their many classmates in sister schools from Spain to South Africa, Central Europe to Central America, creating a unique educational experience.
Webpages can be overwhelming, and largely quote the same educational jargon, aims and aspirations; so may I say, please follow what we actually achieve on social media on a daily basis, observe the smiles of our happy children, and visit us when you can (we offer weekend visits for everyone’s safety in these uncertain times.) Until then, we hope you can find the information you need on these pages, but please contact us for any question you may have.
