Set in beautiful surroundings, overlooking Chepstow Castle, Dean Close St John's offers exceptional co-educational schooling for children aged 3 - 13 years.
Childhood at Dean Close St John's School. It is more than an education, it's a profound feeling of freedom - a chance to climb trees, get muddy knees and light fires, to take risks and to be challenged, to laugh and build lifelong friendships. Independence to explore their learning, both inside and outside the classroom, is an essential ingredient of every child’s educational journey. When combined with nurturing creativity, children are shaped into curious, resilient and outstanding learners, whose focus is not merely on a destination but on the skills acquired and honed along the way.
A real childhood is more important than ever against today’s backdrop of uncertainty; it is not a rehearsal but a precious time of growth where every part of the child must be nurtured. The indescribable value of simply being outdoors must never be underestimated. In the safe environment of outstanding pastoral care, mistakes can happen, failures can be embraced and worries eased. The results are clear: kind, caring and respectful children who are well-grounded and confident in who they are.
The journey starts with Kindergarten, where pupils are immersed in a wonderful world of learning - including French, Swimming, Music and Art. Enroling now: firstname.lastname@example.org
At its very simplest, kindness is good for us. Dean Close St John’s puts an enormous value on pupils being truly kind to one another, to be others-centred and to ensure that their perspective on the world is to help other people.
The opportunities for outdoor learning at Dean Close St John’s are rich and varied. Children and staff have access to the most amazing grounds and facilities – including an on-site Forest School and brand-new outdoor classroom.
It would be impossible to not be inspired by the children at St John’s, their ability to create and build friendships within minutes of meeting each other and welcoming new children and adults into the class with enthusiasm knows no bounds.
