Welcome to St John the Evangelist Catholic Academy

Lord, be thy word, my rule.

Thank you for your interest in St. John The Evangelist Catholic Academy. If you are considering whether to send your child to St. John’s or if your child is about to join us for the first time, we welcome you.

This website is intended to let you know more about the life and work of our Catholic school. With the example of Jesus Christ at its very heart, the school aims to provide a happy and caring environment for your children, where they can grow and enjoy a wide range of learning experiences, which will help them grow into independent and responsible followers of Jesus Christ, ready for the next stage of their journey.

We aim to keep the needs of each individual child uppermost in all that we do and share fully with parents all stages of your children’s development whilst they are in our care.

We believe that every child is a unique gift of God, each and every one is granted unique God-given talents and our aim is to help your child develop them to the full.

Lord, be thy word, my rule.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Helen Rigby

Newman Catholic Collegiate


is a partnership of nine Catholic academies in North Staffordshire, part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham, under the patronage of

Bl St. John Henry Newman.  Our priority is to help students to know Jesus Christ, his mission and his Gospel, which forms our way of living.

We commit to work together so that each academy, respecting its own unique character, will offer outstanding Catholic education.

Our shared vision of life respects the uniqueness of all students, supporting their families, engaging them in their communities, and offering them unconditional love, so that they may achieve their potential and live life in its fullness.

To achieve this, across our academies, we will know one another, offering each other encouragement and active support.

Our vision for the Collegiate is summed up in the words
