Welcome to St John’s


St John’s has become a church sponsored academy with The Good Shepherd Trust, part of  the Diocese of Guildford. We provide education from Nursery (age 3) through to the end of Key Stage 2 (age 11).

To find out what makes St John’s really special you need to come and meet us. Please contact the school office to make an appointment to visit.


Our school has had a major refurbishment over the last two years.  This year we have remodelled our Early Years Unit, with spacious Nursery and Reception classrooms and outdoor learning areas; we have added a Nurture group facility for Special Educational Needs; and finally we have repainted our outdoor swimming pool.

In 2012, we upgraded our Multi Use Games Area; which now boasts a state of the art playing surface, space for three junior five aside pitches and floodlighting. This is available for community bookings outside school hours (contact bookings@stjohnsdorking.surrey.sch.uk).

Find out more about this new development on the “About Us” page.

This website will be updated by 8am on a school day in the event of any unplanned closure.

School starts on Thursday 4th September 2014.
