St John's School

St John’s is a popular Church of England Infant school set in the village of Churt, which is near Farnham in Surrey. The school is a one-form entry with the capacity for 90 children ranging from 4-7 years. It can accept 30 children into each year group. Staff and governors work together to create a warm, happy, stimulating and caring Christian environment in which the children can grow and develop.

The school has very recently benefitted from a fabulous new field, complete with trim trail and gazebo and from September 2017 has a beautiful new school library. The school are keen that in time this facility will be available to the younger children in the village.

Churt has a thriving community spirit and the school gets involved in many village activities. The school, community and parish all work together to help create fantastic learning opportunities for the children. Members of the village come and volunteer in school, help with fundraising and join in with school events, whilst the children love singing carols, maypole dancing and learning from our beautiful village.

As a church school they have very close links with St John’s Parish Church. Rev Clare Challis comes into school to take assemblies on a very regular basis, working closely with Ginnie Gregory, the Headteacher to ensure that Church and school have a meaningful and happy relationship.

High expectations and a school day that offers challenge and excitement, have resulted in this school being one of the very best in this area.The school is rated Outstanding (Ofsted 2010) and Outstanding (SIAMS 2015)
