St John's School

We are an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls, aged Nursery - 16 years, located on a hill overlooking the sea, in the beautiful Regency town of Sidmouth.  We are a relatively small school that caters for around 160 day students, combined with around 50 international boarders, from more than 10 countries around the globe.

IES's mission is to provide excellence in education within an international perspective.  The International Educations Systems group (IES) promotes the development of young people who will have the capacity to contribute proactively to the on-going work towards a better world.

Academic expectations at the school are high, but we also believe that our students' ability to communicate successfully, to consider the needs of others and to show drive, empathy, leadership and initiatives are all attributes that will help them achieve success as well as make a significant contribution to society in later life.

Our school land extends over many hectares and has its own stream, woodland, hedgerows and horticultural area, along with customary sports' pitches, sports' hall, indoor / outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts.  All these facilities lend themselves to outdoor education, creative writing and units of enquiry, in a stimulating, yet calm, learning environment.
