About West Grantham Academy St John's
St John’s is a welcoming church school community, where there is a strong emphasis on caring for, supporting and listening to pupils.
Our pupils at St John’s approach their work in a happy and enthusiastic manner. The principle aim of the academy is to enable all children to learn and to reach their full potential throughout their time with us. We believe in fostering the holistic development of the child and we are committed to helping pupils to become lifetime learners. In order to achieve this the academy sets clear expectations in terms of behaviour and work ethic. All of our staff are committed in helping the pupils achieve and flourish in aspects of school life.
We provide an interesting, stimulating curriculum that responds to the needs of different learning styles and learners’ different needs. We promote perseverance and independence in all lessons. We continually celebrate and share our pupils’ successes. You can find out more about the curriculum by clicking on our year group pages. We also endeavour to equip pupils with the skills to become valuable members of the local community and to have aspirations for their futures.
We believe that parental partnership is vital to ensuring the well-being and academic success of pupils. Parents and carers are an essential component of our school community. Parents can help support their children in their learning to re-enforce the work done at school.

In all aspects of the life of the Trust, we aim to put into practice our values of Creativity, Responsibility and Wisdom, which are based on Biblical principles.
Creativity is fundamental – ‘God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.’ (Genesis, Chapter 1, verse 31)
Responsibility is at the root of the Christian concept of loving service – ‘You were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love’. The entire law is summed up in a single command, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ (Galatians, Chapter 5, verse 13)
Wisdom is that to which we aspire throughout our learning and living – ‘Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding.’ (Proverbs, Chapter 3, verse 13)
