Welcome to St John's Beaumont. We are a Roman Catholic, Jesuit boarding and day preparatory school for boys aged 3-13. Located within easy reach of Heathrow Airport and West and Central London, St John's, the oldest purpose built preparatory school in the country and, founded in 1888, combines the rich tradition of Jesuit education with the very best that modern teaching techniques and technology can offer. Boys leave St John's aged 13 and move to some of the country's finest schools, but more importantly do so as confident, aspirational and resilient young men, aware of their own potential and their ability to leave a positive impression on the lives of others.
We are proud of our boys and of the way they engage so enthusiastically in the enrichment opportunities that we offer. Whether it be the many optional cultural trips, our 'Magis' programme, the wide list of extra-curricular activities or other competitions and challenges, a St John's boy is encouraged to develop a sense of resilience and confidence through trying new and at times, daunting opportunities.
Together with Microsoft, the school is working to build a state of the art educational programme that will support the teaching and learning of our boys. All boys study a rich variety of subjects within the curriculum and this is further supported by an excellent extra-curricular programme (totalling over 50 different activities) for boys of all ages, including; rowing, rock climbing, polo, SJBTV, philosophy, dance, golf and SCUBA diving! We place great emphasis on the academic and pastoral development of our boys and as a result the curriculum and our teaching approach is planned very much with boys in mind.
A new sports centre, opened by Her Majesty the Queen, includes; a 30â€² rock climbing wall, an indoor cricket nets facility, a performing arts studio, rowing room, gymnasium, IT suite and main sports hall.
Whilst we enjoy enviable academic, artistic and sporting facilities, it is the learning environment, the sense of independence, responsibility and enjoyment that I believe characterise both St John's and our boys.
I hope you find this information interesting and informative, but there is no substitute for a personal visit where you can see for yourself what makes us so different. We look forward to welcoming you to St John's soon.
