Confucius Classroom Status
Since February 2012, we are very proud to have held the prestigious Confucius Classroom Status. This partnership with London South Bank University has led to St. John’s pupils experiencing many fantastic cultural and linguistic opportunities. From Kung Fu in Year 4 to Chinese Roadshows’ for all Year groups, children are able to develop their understanding and appreciation of Mandarin and Chinese arts. The partnership enables us to have a full-time Mandarin teacher supporting learning throughout the school and delivering Mandarin lessons to Year 2, 3 and 4. A Mandarin Club for UKS2 ensures that children leave St. John’s with a very unique and enriching set of experiences.
