St John's C Of E School Nursery
Nursery schools provide early learning and childcare for children between 3 and 5 years old. They can be linked to an infant or primary school. Nursery places can be for half day or a whole day.
St John’s is 170 years old, and one of the oldest schools in the borough of Tower Hamlets. Originally built in 1841, and accommodating up to 670 children, the school’s original charter stated an intention to offer the poorest children of the area a ‘good, sound education’. Today, the Victorian building still has many structural clues which give an insight into how the building was used many years ago but you’ll have to look closely! Over the past ten years, the school has undertaken some extensive refurbishment, particularly to the Year 1 class, Administration and Main Reception Area and the development of a new ICT Suite and Library, all of which have enhanced the usage of our school space. In September 2012 we opened our new building for our pupils in Nursery and Reception which was built on a section of our large playground. This space helps provide the very best start for the youngest entrants to our school.
