Headteacher's Welcome


Welcome and thank you for taking the time to find out more about our school.

I am extremely proud of our school and all that it stands for. We aim to provide an inspiring and stimulating learning environment for all our children. Our dedicated and skilled staff, governing body and parish family strive to enable all members of St John Southworth School to grow personally, academically, socially and spiritually with Christ at the centre.

We are a Catholic Voluntary Aided School and we are situated in Nelson, a town with a wealth of cultural and industrial diversity and we aim to reflect and celebrate in that diversity within our school.

I hope that our website provides you with all the information that you need and also a flavour of what our school is like.

Should you require any more information please contact the school office where a member of staff will be happy to speak to you.
