A word from the head

Click here to view a larger photo
Opportunity is a key word at St. Johnís-on-the-Hill School and Day Nurseries. The wider the experience, the broader the education. With three Day Nurseries, two in Chepstow and one at Celtic Springs Business Park Newport, St. Johnís aim to provide even the youngest child with the best possible start. The approach to childcare in all 3 Nurseries is simple; that all children are different and so their needs and capabilities must be fostered and nurtured to develop and build individual success. Children from 3 months to pre-school age are cared for in a gentle and relaxed environment by a fully qualified team of experienced and friendly staff. The St. Johnís philosophy is to ensure that all children achieve their full potential and all activities are through play in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for learning.

Children at all 3 St. Johnís Nurseries are guaranteed a place in the Pre-Prep Department at St. Johnís in Tutshill, where they continue to learn in a number of different ways. They learn to swim in St. Johnís own swimming pool. They learn to dance and act in the hall of the new pre-prep building. They learn to count, read, use a computer and design as part of everyday school life. They learn about nature in the beautiful school grounds, but above all else they learn how to grow up in a caring, sharing way by watching the older pupils who have already benefited from a wide variety of challenging and exciting activities; with the support of enthusiastic teachers, teaching small and manageable classes.

St Johnís-on-the-Hill is an IAPS independent day and boarding preparatory school with a Pre-Prep and Day Nursery overlooking Chepstow Castle, caring and educating children from the age of 3 months Ė 13+ years. The school offers a number of scholarships and bursaries.
