St John's is a hub school for a cluster within Brownhills and Walsall Wood, on the northern edge of Walsall. We are an outstanding school and have recently been awarded Teaching School status and we have a very good track record of developing trainees ready for their first year in teaching. We have a very strong partnership with Wolverhampton University, which enables trainees to receive the highest quality start to their teaching career. All trainees in our partnership have gained employment over the last two years.

We are also a National Hub school for Big Maths, regularly training and coaching other schools.

Our partnership now boasts several schools around the Brownhills area comprising of Nursery (via our links with the Ogley Nursery Hub), Primary (faith and non-faith). We are also fortunate to have a local Secondary school to complement our training. Additionally within the partnership are schools in contrasting areas of Walsall which are predominantly EAL.
