St. John's School is now closed

The board of trustees of St. John’s School and College made the difficult decision to close St. John’s School in Seaford at the end of the summer term of 2023.

The decision has been made on the basis that the school has had a declining learner roll and has faced a challenging external environment which has impacted on its ability to recruit staff.

We recognise that this decision will have a significant impact on the school’s learners, parents and carers, and staff. We are committed to working closely with them and local authorities to support this transition period.

— Simon Charleton, Chief Executive, St. John’s School and College
