On behalf of everyone at Brinscall St John’s CE/Methodist Primary School, I would like to welcome you to our school website.  I hope you will find the information contained both helpful and informative.  Our school is located in a beautiful rural setting.  Currently, we have 208 children on role, organised into 7 spacious classes.  Our overall aim is to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment in which our children can learn and experience a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum.

We intend our pupils to acquire the skills and knowledge which will enable them to develop into adults who are confident and willing, caring and concerned, committed to their own development, yet aware of their responsibilities to others. We hope our pupils will gain independence of thought and action for their own well-being and happiness, and that of others.

We see your child’s education as a partnership between home, school, churches and the local community. Through working together we can provide effective teaching and learning for every child in an atmosphere of trust where all are valued. We have close links with our local churches of St Paul’s, St Luke’s, St Barnabas, Hillside Methodist and the Chorley Methodist Circuit.  Our local clergy and many of their parishioners are frequent visitors in school.  Pupils are drawn to Brinscall St John’s from the whole of the Brinscall area and beyond.  Our school was judged in April 2012 by Ofsted and was graded outsanding.  In November 2016 we also had or SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection and were also rewarded with an outstanding grade. 

We believe in providing the highest quality of education for all our children in a caring positive atmosphere based firmly upon Christian values. We try to ensure that St John's is a friendly and thriving place and invite you to share in its life.

If you would like to visit, then please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be delighted to meet with you and proud to show you the school in action.
