Virtual Tours

Welcome from Mr Tucker, Principal

Visit St John’s

Using the menu, you can visit many areas within St John’s. We recommend you start by viewing our aerial tour, to see St John’s in its impressive landscape, then head to our atrium, which leads to other areas of the school. We have also set up visits to different departments and classrooms. We hope you enjoy using our 360° images to explore St John’s.

You can click and drag on a 360° image to look around a room, follow the maps, and use the hotspots or the dots and side arrows to move between images.

As you walk into St John’s through the main doors you enter our stunning Atrium, the heart of St John’s, where students gather to socialise and eat. From here, you have a clear view of our award-winning library, well-equipped sports hall, and can enter the impressive theatre. We use our Atrium for art and design shows and other events throughout the year.

Theatre on the Hill

We are proud of our well-equipped 350-seat Theatre, which is used throughout the year for assemblies, staff meetings, concerts and drama productions, exhibitions, exams, and PE. The room has comfortable retractable seating, making the space extremely flexible. A variety of professional lighting and sound equipment is available for productions and concerts.

Library

Our central library is available for all our students to use before, during and after school. In addition to extensive book collections, the library has a range of comfortable seating, work tables, and computer stations providing a quiet place for students to read or work. The library carries newspapers, magazines, journals and DVDs, while revision guides and stationery are also available to buy. Our friendly library staff are available at all times to help students with their research or to find a new book to enjoy.

Classrooms

Our architects designed St John’s to allow the beautiful countryside around Marlborough to be visible as much as possible, and also created inspiring views within the school. Classrooms are designated by subject and our students move from room to room between lessons. Take a look around some of our subject classrooms. Please note that our classrooms are currently laid out in a more formal style than usual due to social distancing requirements.

Outdoor Spaces

In the same way that our classrooms were designed to maximise light, and benefit from the beautiful views, the outdoor spaces were also carefully designed to enhance our students’ experience. In addition to being popular social spaces for students to meet and eat, our outside areas are regularly used for teaching, sport, and drama productions.
