Transformation and diversity at St John’s College

The St John's community as a whole is navigating its way through a difficult and challenging time during which the school's commitment to meaningful and lasting transformation has been questioned. We have taken on board the valid criticism of our progress in this regard.

As such, we are engaged in multiple and parallel processes in support of a more inclusive school community. This work includes, but is not limited to, actively engaging all St John's stakeholders, drafting an anti-racism policy, re-examining existing school policies and codes of conduct, and the establishment of an interim committee to relentlessly drive transformation and build trust and credibility regarding the school's transformation efforts and governance structures. The stakeholder engagement process has already begun and, we assure you, will continue until everyone is heard.

Our work is continuing throughout the school break to better advance the St John's mission: To create an environment in which our pupils can live their lives to the full, learn accountability, fulfil their potential, and reach their dreams.

We will provide feedback on our immediate progress once the Michaelmas term begins, and communicate further progress regularly. We aim to demonstrably live our motto: Lux Vita Caritas – Light, Life and Love.
