Co-Headteachers' Welcome

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the Epping St. John's school website.  Here, you will find a wealth of information about the school and we have no doubt that you will be impressed by the school's commitment, being a centre of opportunity and achievement for the young people of Epping and the surrounding areas.

Students and staff who come to Epping St. John's on a daily basis can enjoy and benefit from some of the best facilities in a calm, orderly and safe environment.  We are a school with state-of-the-art technology and first rate, specialist facilities with a thriving sixth form to be proud of. It is a simple formula, children are at the centre of everything we do and every decision that we make.

In our unique role we are privileged to work with young people in providing opportunities to be successful at school. This happens within a setting where there are high expectations of behaviour, high quality learning, positive relationships between individuals and a wide range of opportunities for students to develop through involvement in sport, the arts and other enrichment activities. Epping St John's is a Church of England School. This means that Christian values are fundamental to the day to day running of the school.

We are also conscious of the expectations of the school by the local community and, to this end, we are committed to strengthening ties within our natural catchment area of primary schools and as a proud member of the Burnt Mill Academy Trust. So many young people have come through the school in recent years and have progressed to achieve great things at university or with high quality employers locally and nationally.  The good news of these achievements deserves to be broadcast widely and we trust this website contributes to this process.

Students and staff are proud of their school.  Students are well cared for and they clearly benefit from the priority given to ensuring their social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.  Staff work very hard and are committed to achieving standards that can only take Epping St. John's School from strength to strength.

If you are a parent, a student or, perhaps, a prospective employer, we hope you will enjoy using this site.  We trust, also, that if you are impressed by what you read, you will want to be part of the future of Epping St. John's.
