St John the Baptist Catholic Comprehensive School

We want to be the best school in the country. By this we mean that all our students will receive a better education here than they would at any other establishment.

We want children to leave us with:

  • Better qualifications than they would achieve in any other school.
  • The skills and attributes needed to live and work in tomorrow’s global society.
  • The values and morals to lead good Christian lives.

There is definitely a culture of achievement here at SJB but don’t get the impression that we are an out of touch, old-fashioned church school. This could not be further from the truth. Visitors always comment about the ethos within the school and we were delighted to win the Millennium Trophy which was awarded by the LEA to the best school in Surrey. Our achievements have also been recognised externally. We have the Charter Mark, Leading Edge Status, International School Status and Teaching School Status. We are the largest secondary SCITT nationally and one of the 5 Maths hubs in the south of England.

Our mission is to be a Catholic School where every individual is highly valued and where care and concern for others is central to our work. All our students are expected to achieve their full potential and leave us ready to make a positive contribution to society. At SJB everything we do is guided by Gospel values.
