Mr Lester Lalla

Welcome to St John’s Preparatory School - a vibrant and happy learning community where we remain committed to the ambition of those who came before us, that St John’s be a place where boys are rightly trained in body, mind and character.

Rooted firmly in the Anglican tradition, we offer our boys a holistic education characterised by a rigorous academic curriculum that enables them to engage the world in a meaningful way; and a dynamic, well-structured co-curricular programme with an emphasis on participation and personal excellence.

Through teaching and learning that is rich in knowledge, skills and experience, we endeavour to develop young men of character and empathy who are curious and socially responsive.

Our talented and dedicated staff draw on global best practices in order to deliver an educational experience that is relevant, contextual and informed.

We are extremely proud of our long-awaited and newly opened Preparatory building, which looks to the future with an emphasis on function, comfort and durability while honouring the past with harmonious integration with the old Prep buildings.

I invite you to visit our world-class Christian, African campus and share in the awe and wonder of learning.

Mr Lester Lalla

Preparatory Headmaster

St John’s Prep hosted their annual Polar Bear Swim, taking to the icy waters of Long Walk Pool to help raise funds for the completion of the new Aquatics Centre, raising enough money to get Stuart West, Executive Headmaster at St John's College, and Lester Lalla, Preparatory Headmaster into the freezing water.

Leap of Faith 2030

Our Anglican heritage compels us to make St John’s a home of belonging for every staff member, every student, and every family that composes the St John’s community.

Over the last few years, we’ve been working hard across our stakeholder groups – staff, students, parents, and Old Johannians – to inform a strong direction for transformation for St John’s College. Last year, we began to craft a roadmap that would guide this journey - our Leap of Faith.
