Welcome to St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School. Photograph of School

We are proud of our lovely school, built in 1988-89 to continue to provide a Catholic education for the children of St John the Baptist parish and surrounding areas. We celebrated our Silver Jubilee with a special mass and party in June 2014. The original school building still exists, next to the parish church in Kemptown. The school is built in the style of a Roman villa and has amazing views of the city, the sea and the South Downs.

 Our mission statement is centred on the child; we are all focused on developing together as a school that is lively and buzzing with energy; where children feel happy and secure and are supported and challenged to achieve their personal best. 

Central to this is our commitment to developing as a Catholic school where Christian values are experienced through daily life and relationships; through prayer, worship and celebration; and where all adults are role models for children in terms of respect and moral values. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our school. 

With best wishes, 

Carmel Hughes.
