We are a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary Academy with two-form entry throughout Years R-6. We are oversubscribed with two children applying for every place. Our most recent Ofsted (July 2015) rated us Outstanding in all areas. St. John's serves the primarily owner-occupied Grove Green and Bearsted Park areas, between Bearsted and Maidstone. Our school opened in September 1987. It is well resourced with extensive grounds. There is an active Friends association and a very supportive governing body. We are staffed with very caring, positive, enthusiastic, hardworking teachers, TAs, office staff and caretaking team.
St John's has an excellent reputation amongst our local community and we work in collaboration with a number of other Primary and Secondary schools to share best practice for the benefit of staff and to enrich the lives of the children.
