Dear Parent/Carer

You are warmly invited to attend a meeting for new students and their parents from 6.00 – 8.00 pm at St John’s Catholic School and Sixth Form Centre on Wednesday, 11 July 2012.

St John's students have been making great progress with revision using SAM Learning. There are currently 160 active users in Year 11, 100 in Year 10 and 181 in Year 9. The avergae user in Year 11 spends 6.12 hours on revision and learning activities. 

On the 19th of December, a selection of students represented the Music Department and visited The Butterwick Hospice in Bishop Auckland.  Singers and instrumentalists played a variety of Christmas repertoire to entertain a small group of residents during their Christmas party.

As the end of term approaches, we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and holy Christmas.  We would also like to thank you for your cooperation and support during this past term.  It has been a busy and hopefully enjoyable time for all students.

Dear Parent/Carer

We would like to welcome new parents/carers to St John's as well as those of you who already have children attending the school. Over the summer we celebrated fantastic exam results with our Year 11 students achieving 87% 5 or more A*-C grades and 68% including Maths and English. Our A levels results were also the best ever with 35% achieving A*and A grades. These students are now preparing to take up their places at university.
