Throughout the school, and on all levels, students are challenged, supported and encouraged in accordance with our core value of companionship. The Support Services staff at St. John’s are part of this approach, working closely with all teachers in a shared purpose of enabling the individual student to thrive physically, academically, creatively and personally. This we do in the belief that every student should be enabled to achieve personal excellence.
The Learning Support programme is open to all St. John’s students who have learning differences or difficulties, or who are failing to achieve their full potential in their school work. Programmes typically focus on providing support in the core academic areas and organizational skills as we work together towards the goal of successful, rewarding academic learning. Teaching is provided either in small groups or as in-class support as appropriate. Services are available for English as an Additional Language, and from the Guidance Counsellors, Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist. Students with diagnosed learning or behavioural issues will be considered for admission following evaluations by the school’s support services staff to ensure the school can meet the needs of the student.
