Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to the start of the school year, in particular to those new students joining us in Year 7 and Year 12 and their parents and carers. We look forward also to our Open Evening for primary school students and their parents and carers on Thursday 2 October.

Choosing the best secondary education for your child is one of the most important decisions you as a parent will ever have to make. After 50 years as a successful secondary school within the State sector, John Mason converted to become an Academy in 2013. Today, John Mason School is still the best choice for your child's education.  We are a friendly, caring and inclusive learning community that nurtures the whole child. We base our ethos and culture on core values of ambition, achievement, teamwork, honesty, trust and respect. 

From the time they join us in Year 7 to the time they leave us in Year 13, students at John Mason make impressive progress, resulting in excellent examination results. Our curriculum is flexible, innovative and allows bespoke pathways to be created for each individual child.  This is just one of the many things that makes John Mason a very special place to learn.

The time your child spends with us is precious and we take very seriously our responsibility for educating them, priding ourselves on the relationships that exist between staff and students. Visitors comment on the friendly and calm atmosphere at John Mason.  

As Headteacher I want every child to leave John Mason School a well-adjusted, happy and confident individual with the best possible examination results, who will go on to make a mark on their community and society wherever that may be.  

It is always a pleasure to meet parents, whether you have children already with us or are just beginning the process of deciding where to send your child.  In either case, do please visit us. Come and see for yourself what makes John Mason School so special.

Ms Di Mashiter
