Current guidance from the Department for Education is that if it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be. Therefore, until further notice the school is closed to all but children of key workers and others who require additional supervision.
At John Colet School we want students to progress both academically and in terms of their character. They can achieve the first of these goals with the support of staff, by having a positive attitude to learning in the classroom and showing determination and effort to succeed in everything they undertake. A student's character is formed first and foremost at home under the guidance and example of parents and carers. In school a wide range of extracurricular opportunities in which students are able to participate and lead will ensure that the young people in our care leave as well-developed individuals of good character who are confident and capable to make a contribution to society.
This is a good school that is striving to become better in all aspects of its work through being committed to excellence. If you would like to learn more about JCS please do not hesitate to make contact.
Leaders at all levels have taken effective steps to improve teaching so that teaching is now of a high quality in the majority of subjects across the school. (Ofsted, May 2016)
The school’s ethos is based on hard work and mutual respect. School leaders promote these values well to pupils, parents and staff. Consequently, pupils report that they are well supported to achieve, no matter what their background or ethnicity. Leaders promote fairness and equality thoroughly so that pupils are respectful and understanding of each other’s differences. (Ofsted, May 2016)
