The School Games Mark
We are delighted to announce that St. John's School has achieved the GOLD School Games Mark. This is a government lead awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school. We achieved the bronze award last year but have been able to GO FOR GOLD this year thanks to all the hard work and determination to raise the sporting profile and opportunities for our children at St. John's. We are continually evaluating our PE provision to develop action plans for sustained and future progress.

The Good Ship Flotsam Project
This summer, Class 5 were asked to create a piece of art using nothing but recycled materials. The project -The Good Ship Flotsam- is a ship that has been designed by local artist Lynne Winstanley to recognise the global environmental issues caused by marine pollution. St John's pupils worked strenuously, collecting as many bottle tops as they possible could, to create a mosaic of the Sefton cross. Take a look at our pictures below, or why not visit the ship itself at Crosby Marina, to see the wonderful piece of art created by our talented children.
