Overall effectiveness Good

"Students achieve well at St John’s, improving their academic performance and developing into confident and articulate young adults. They are well prepared for the next stage of their life, usually moving on to a further education college."; "Teaching is good, marked by effective teamwork across all the adults involved in the students’ education."; "Behaviour in lessons and around the school is good. The excellent relationships that staff have with the students help them to manage behaviour well when necessary. Students’ safety, care and well-being are good."; "Not enough of the teaching is outstanding. Teachers’ marking does not give students sufficient guidance on what they have to do to improve. Teachers’ planning does not provide students with sufficient opportunities to make their own informed choices or to develop more advanced life skills without support from the adults."
