Help us deliver an inspiring Catholic education.

At St John Payne School, pupils are proud to participate in a Catholic education.

Our mission is to develop outstanding students, whilst truly caring for everyone with whom we work. As Ofsted noted in 2016: "Pupils' personal development and welfare is outstanding. Pupils are confident and assured, and conduct themselves well among peers and adults. The school's Catholic ethos makes an excellent contribution to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural education."

The retirement of our current Headteacher means we require an inspiring, visionary professional to lead our school community and take us from Good to Outstanding.

The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We follow safer recruitment practice and appointments are subject to satisfactory DBS certification and references.
