Annual Minis Lunch - Saturday 4th March

12th February 2017

The annual Minis Lunch will be held Saturday 4th March.  The day is assigned to the Minis Section to raise funds for the club and to increase the social contact between and within age groups.

This is a non-6 Nations weekend and the date for the bruising London Cornish 1XV fixture. The cost of the meal will be £20 per head. 

We will meet in the clubhouse bar at 12 noon and the 1st XV fixture will commence after the meal.  All will be welcome to watch the match from the touchline or from the warmth of the balcony…..conveniently close to the bar!

This is a key fund raising event and the club only benefits when tickets are sold. Tickets can be arranged by contacting the Minis Section year group managers, the Minis Chairman or Tim Howard directly.  Please dig deep and buy tickets for what promises to be a knock-out game and great way to spend a Saturday lunchtime.

Many thanks for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you there.

31st January 2017


From September 2017, St John’s School is looking to employ four exceptional graduates with a good degree in any discipline. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in an educational setting by contributing to the sporting and co-curricular programme of a leading co-educational independent school in the south east of England.

There is a possibility to develop into a teaching fellow role for the right candidate.

Ideally candidates will have coaching or playing experience in a variety of sports, but those who excel in one sport will still be considered. We are particularly interested in graduates with a strong background in rugby, football or cricket.

Enthusiasm, flexibility, a positive approach to all games, the ability to work as part of a team, and a willingness to participate fully in a busy and thriving School are essential, as is a sense of humour.
