Primary School

Pupils and their art

All parents want the best for their child and every child wants to be happy. We believe a John Scottus education provides the best that your child needs to be happy.

Central to the ethos of the school is character development through cultivating the life skills of stillness, attention and enquiry. The curriculum on offer in John Scottus Secondary will challenge the learner to develop all aspects of the person: mental, emotional, social, physical and spiritual.



John Scottus school offers a vision of education which gives young people the self mastery, strength of character and compassion to contribute meaningfully to the world around them. It is an education based on the belief that each child has at their heart a limitless potential.
