Welcome to St John’s

St John’s School, Scarborough is a Catholic, co-educational, single stream primary school for students from Pre Kindergarten to Year 6.

Our school’s tradition of educational excellence spans over 70 years and continues to be supported by our dynamic teachers and diverse curriculum opportunities. Our education expands well beyond the walls of our classrooms and our programs develop in each of our students the aptitudes for lifelong learning.

Our teachers endeavour to develop the whole child by encouraging children to discover their own talents and strengths, shaping and positioning students to learn and thrive in our ever-changing and developing world by activating engaging and rewarding learning and encouraging students to contribute to their communities.

Our vibrant and varied academic, social and pastoral programs are underpinned by our strong school values – Truth, Achievement, Respect.

Our students and families are welcomed into our warm, caring and connected community. We are proud to be widely recognised for our welcoming and inclusive community and have an excellent reputation in the area for pastoral care and quality Early Childhood education. Walk inside our school gates and you will feel this community spirit.


Visit Us!

Come and visit us to experience the life of a St John’s student.

A tour is an opportunity to observe classrooms in action, to see our facilities and to talk with our Principal, Mrs Velma Erskine, about the St John’s programs and offerings. We’ll get in touch with you and confirm your tour.

Summer Uniform

Next term, all students move back into their Summer Uniform. Children are expected to wear their summer uniform from the beginning of Term Four. An essential part of the school uniform is a hat. The school rule is: ‘No hat, no play’. Please ensure your child has a school hat and that it is clearly labelled with your child’s name. We ask parents to please check the condition of your child’s uniform over the coming weeks.
