Beyond St John's

While many of our pupils go on to Dean Close School, others go on to a wide range of senior schools, including Haberdashers' Monmouth, Wycliffe College and The King's School, Gloucester.

Many of our pupils are fortunate enough to earn scholarships to senior school. We have a good tradition of Sport Scholars at St John's as well as Academic Scholars. Some pupils have also succeeded in gaining Drama, Art or Music Scholarships. 

What is most notable is how many of our pupils go on to take up leadership positions in their chosen senior school. A St John's education gives them a great foundation and leadership skills that set them up for success as they move into the world beyond St John's.

We have Alumni leading the way in medicine, ecology, policy and TV. Old St Johnians have worked in costume design, written scripts for Doctor Who and re-rigged the Cutty Sark. One is a now Master of Wine, one of only a few in the world. Others are journalists for the Times. There are car restorers, racers and land speed record engineers; artists, authors and filmmakers; Majors, barristers and surgeons. All as individual and inspiring as our pupils today.

Old St Johnian Alumni Society

Dean Close St John’s wants to keep in touch with as many former pupils as possible. Our alumni are a large part of our history and our future.

The membership is free and is part of the benefit of being a pupil at Dean Close St John’s.
