Welcome to The Minster Junior School, which has been serving the local community and providing a high quality education for over 65 years. In April 2022 we became an academy, joining Southwark Diocese Board of Education Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). Our inclusive, Christian ethos underpins a caring, safe environment where values such as self-esteem and mutual respect allow all children and staff to feel confident, happy and valued. We see all our children as unique individuals and really celebrate their diversity.
The Minster Junior School is a large Junior School with approximately 440 pupils on roll. As a Church of England school, we value all God’s children and welcome children of all faiths to our family. The school enjoys close links with Croydon Minster Church and the Vicar regularly leads collective worship.
Our school is set in spacious grounds and is very well equipped with excellent resources. We have a very skilled and caring group of teachers who bring out the best in all our children. From our Artist in Residence to our specialist music and sports coaches, we nurture the whole child, not just fulfilling their academic potential but their personal and creative development too. Being at the heart of the community, we ensure we work very closely in partnership with parents, carers and governors, where we live by our vision statement,
‘Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another, to show love and do good’ Hebrews 10:24 GNT
If your child is transferring from The Minster Nursery and Infant School or if you are moving from elsewhere, we will do all we can to make the settling in process as easy as possible. We value your input, as your child’s first teachers, and your belief in us that we have the best interests of your child at heart. We have an open door policy so come in and talk to us!
