A message from our Student Leadership
King John is a place where each person is pushed to reach their maximum potential. It’s a school where you can be yourself and never fear judgement. It’s a school that ensures equality everywhere you go. King John loves to participate in all sporting competitions. Throughout my time I have participated in: football, basketball, rugby, athletics, cross-country and even handball. The school encourages participation and I completely understand why as I have made some of my favourite memories in sport. Not only with teammates but also the staff as well. To conclude, I feel King John is the perfect place for anyone who wants to unlock their maximum potential whilst enjoying an excellent education.

The King John School delivers a variety of opportunities aimed at progressing students to be the best both academically, and as role models in the community. This is at the core of everything around the school and is embodied within our PRIDE values. The chances the students at our school receive are incredible, and I am extremely thankful for the teachers and their desire to go above and beyond. With a pupil-focused setting as good as King John’s, it is the best chance of unlocking a student’s full potential.

In my opinion, King John created an atmosphere like no other a caring, welcoming, and extremely positive environment. With the unique, facilities everyone can find their passion that will drive them through their school life. In my experience, I have had the opportunity to compete in numerous netball matches and hockey leagues. From an outside perspective as well as an inside perspective the many extra-curricular that we offer are massively encouraged and help students feel a sense of belonging. I feel King John pushes students to the best of their ability in every area of learning. It is an excellent place for a positive, learning experience during teenage years.

The King John School offers a multitude of opportunities for all students. Through my time at the King John School, the excellent teachers and pastoral staff have supported me to excel both athletically and academically. Through the Jack Petchey program I was able to learn key life lessons and skills. The KJS community has a positive environment which it uses to encourages all to grow into integral members of society as well as clubs within our school such as student leadership that’s inspires students to voice their opinions and make positive change within the school. The King John School strives to foster students into becoming the best versions of themselves, therefore the King John School is one I take Pride in.

Mia – Principal Student Leader 2023-24
The King John School is a place that has certainly shaped the person I am today.
Throughout the many opportunities offered here, I have developed both academic subject knowledge required for further study, and also key skills that are essential in the wider world. The Jack Petchey Speak Out challenge is of notable importance as it has helped me overcome a degree of aversion to public speaking; it did this through highlighting different methods of approaching such a situation. I truly appreciate the dedicated staff here who work diligently to help us achieve our true potential and beyond, and I am proud to represent and be a part of this community.
Ilia – Head of School
Throughout my seven years at the King John School, I have been fortunate enough to be presented with a plethora of opportunities like our student voice and various clubs and enrichment activities. These opportunities within the school have helped me unlock my full potential both personally and academically. The ongoing support and guidance from our school’s careers and UCAS team throughout both main school and the sixth form went above and beyond my expectations, preparing me for further education and life beyond KJS. King John has pushed me to the best of my abilities and taught me invaluable life lessons and attitudes which I am proud to encompass throughout my life.
