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.
Details about changes to the normal running of the school as a result of Covid-19 are available on the dedicated webpage.
Admissions to Year 7 in September 2021
Unfortunately due to the restrictions we are currently working under it is not possible to hold open events for parents and Year 6 pupils considering their choice of secondary schools for next academic year. This makes the decision of how to rank schools in terms of preference much harder than in previous years, but decisions have to be made by 31 October in line with the timeline and guidance set out by Bucks Council. Although there is nothing like talking to students and members of staff on an Open Evening or Open Morning we have created a video that includes contributions which will provide you with an insight into what life is like at John Colet School. If, after watching the video, you have questions please compete this Google Form by Friday 16 October. I will then answer the most frequently asked questions and make this available to parents before the application deadline.
Please make use of the following sources of information before making that all important selection of schools.
