St John the Baptist School is a Voluntary Aided Secondary co-educational day school operating under the Trust Deed of the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. It was founded for the education of Catholic children and it is the intention of the Governors that the Catholic character of the school will always be maintained.
The School has Teaching School Status.
The Governors expect that parents applying for places for their children will accept and uphold the Catholic character and ethos of the school. Nevertheless, the school fully respects the beliefs of parents and children from all denominations and faith backgrounds. Students are taught respect and tolerance for others and there is provision in the religious education programme for the study of different faiths.
The school primarily serves the Catholic community of the Woking Deanery, (please see map on the school website) which comprises the parishes of Woking, Camberley, Camberley North with Bagshot, Frimley, Knaphill and West Byfleet. The deanery primary schools located in that community which are the feeder schools for St John the Baptist School are
- St Dunstan’s Primary School, Woking
- St Augustine’s Primary School, Camberley
- St Hugh of Lincoln Primary School, Knaphill
- The Marist Primary School, West Byfleet
We encourage parents to visit our school in order to find out more about how we work and the education that we offer. Parents are welcome to arrange a visit by contacting the school office. Such visits, however, are not obligatory and do not form part of the process of deciding which children are to be offered a place at the school. If you would like to visit the school to discuss the entry of your child please telephone our Admissions Managers:
- Mrs Claire Antal Years 7-11 01483 729343 ext 123

An Open Evening is held at the end of September or early October when interested families may look round the school and meet the Headteacher and staff. The School Prospectus and Supplementary Information Form for admission are available at the Open Evening or at any time from the school website.
A New Parents’ Evening is held in July for all new students, their parents and families. Parents and prospective students are also welcome to visit the school at any time. Students are admitted to all other year groups only if places are available. Parents are requested to make an appointment to see the Assistant Head, Mr Owen Bruynseels, in the first place.
