Our Vision and Values

“Achieving Together”:
Specialist, Collaborative, Dynamic, Aspirational


We believe in “Achieving Together” in a collaborative, dynamic and aspirational way.  Our pupils and staff love learning and enjoy coming to school.  We aim to make learning irresistible in our school by making it exciting and relevant to our pupils, while meeting their needs.  We pride ourselves on using specialist techniques to support our young people and we are constantly learning and refine our practice with new ideas.  All our staff receive high quality specialist training so that all our young people have access to the best practice and provision.

We collaborate in so many ways.  We are part of the BILTT Multi academy trust incorporating two other schools  Grey’s Education Centre and Grange Academy. We also work closely with our partners in special and mainstream schools across Bedfordshire.  We have a dedicated team of Nurses on site and the Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Teams support us in school too.

Our aspirations for our pupils, staff and St John’s School, are very high.  We are dynamic and energetic and try very hard to work alongside our young people to help them to be the best they can be so they can face life’s opportunities and challenges with joy, confidence and resilience.
