St John's College

About Us

St John’s College is a Christian co-educational day and boarding school for ages 2 – 18 years.

Our quest for academic excellence is paramount, but our aim is that everyone should fulfill their potential, whatever that may be.  We are a wide-range ability school offering a rounded education and providing opportunities for pupils through an extensive range of activities to develop talents and create confident young people for the future.   

St John’s College was founded in 1908 by a Lasallian community of Brothers established by John Baptist De La Salle, the patron saint of teachers.  We aim to follow his vision in both our academic and pastoral care.  In September 2015 we became independent from the De La Salle Trust but we remain a Lasallian school. 

We are located in Southsea - a small seaside town in the historical city of Portsmouth, which is the UK’s only island city.   All schools are situated on the one campus, and our extensive playing fields are located on the outskirts of the city.
