Welcome to St John's Beaumont. We are a Roman Catholic, Jesuit boarding and day preparatory school for boys aged 3-13. Located within easy reach of Heathrow Airport and Central London, St John's, the oldest purpose built preparatory school in the country and founded in 1888, combines the rich tradition of Jesuit education with the very best that modern teaching techniques and technology can offer. Boys leave St John's aged 13 and proceed to some of the country’s finest schools, but more importantly do so as confident, aspirational and resilient young men, aware of their own potential and their ability to leave a positive impression on the lives of others.
Together with Microsoft, the school is working to build a state of the art educational programme that will support the teaching and learning of our pupils. All boys study a rich variety of subjects within the curriculum and this is further supported by an excellent extra-curricular programme (totalling over 50 different activities) for boys of all ages, including…..rowing, rock climbing, polo, dance, golf and SCUBA diving! We place great emphasis on the academic and pastoral development of our boys and as a result the curriculum and our teaching approach is planned very much with boys in mind.
A new sports centre was opened by her Majesty the Queen in October 2009. This includes; a 30' rock climbing wall, a state-of-the-art cricket facility, a performing arts studio, rowing room, gymnasium, iMac suite and main sports hall.
Whilst we enjoy enviable academic, artistic and sporting facilities, it is the learning environment, the sense of independence, responsibility and enjoyment that I believe characterise both the school and our boys.
I hope you find this website interesting and informative, but there is no substitute for a personal visit where you can see for yourself what makes us so different. We look forward to welcoming you to St John’s soon.
