Year 5 Open Evening


Next week we will be holding our annual Year 5 Open Evening. This is a great chance for Year 5 pupils and their parents to come and have a look around the school and meet some of our students and teachers. It will take place on Tuesday 3 February between 4.00pm and 5.30pm. Tours of the school will be running throughout the evening with our last tour leaving at 5pm.

Key members of staff, such as our Headteacher, SENCO and the School Chaplain will be available in the Hall to answer any questions and the Physical Education department will also be available should you have any queries about the sporting opportunities, clubs and activities that we run in school.

If you know any families with children in Year 5 please feel free to invite them to our Year 5 Open Evening at Saint John Houghton Catholic Voluntary Academy.

Please contact Mrs McDermott should you need any further information or details

It is never too early to be thinking about University!


Corpus Christi College Oxford are visiting us on Monday January 19th (SJH School Hall at 4pm – students wishing to stay in school until the talk are welcome to wait in room 18).

We welcome all students past and present, as well as friends and family members with an interest in the admission process for Oxford University. This is an exciting opportunity for students and parents to find out more about one of the UK’s leading universities. The talk will cover the academic offering and teaching system at Oxford, non-academic aspects of Oxford student life, financial support available to students, and the employment prospects of Oxford graduates; the talk will also outline the Oxford admissions process and provide pointers as to how to go about compiling a strong application.

Even though the talk is Oxford-centred and related to Science-based Degrees, it will have relevance for all students wishing to apply to University in the future.

Any further queries, please contact Dr Landy (
