Ofsted Report

St. John the Baptist Parish was born from the Brighton Catholic Mission, which dates from 1798. The present church building was completed in 1835 and was the fourth Catholic church to be consecrated in England and Wales. It is the Mother Church for the South of England. Maria Fitzherbert is one of the many notable parishioners and patrons of the parish. She was the Catholic morganatic wife of King George IV and had a high profile in Regency Brighton. Maria is buried in the parish church, which she dearly loved.

The parish is a busy community with many Catechists and Eucharistic Ministers who care educationally and pastorally for the parish. Additionally, there are a number of Societies and organisations that support parish life. The parish and school continue a long relationship of mutual awareness and partnership. Both parish and school continue to be beacons of hope for the East of Brighton.

St. John the Baptist School has an enviable history. It is one of the oldest schools in Brighton. It began as a convent school in Bristol Road. In April 1989 the building that is now the school was finished. It is built in the style of a Roman Villa and has magnificent views of Brighton city, seacoast and the South Downs.


St John the Baptist Primary School was founded to provide a Catholic education for children in the parish of St John the Baptist. All aspects of teaching and learning at our school reflect Christian principles and as a result all children receive the distinctive Catholic education which the school provides.

Below are the criteria that the governors will apply in the event that the school is oversubscribed.

Siblings of pupils on the school roll at the start of the school year who fulfil the criteria for a category will take precedence over others in that and subsequent categories.

In the event of it being necessary to distinguish between children in any category the Governors will allocate a place to children living closest to the school as the crow flies.


The club notice board has photographs of all the activities in which the children are involved.

There is also a suggestion pouch for children to put their ideas forward for clubs they would like to have in the future.

Suggestion pouch

We now have a new building housing a library and two smaller rooms. These are used for class activities during the school day and for paid childcare in the form of afterschool clubs outside of the normal school hours.
