Welcome to The Minster Junior School
‘Let us be concerned for one another,to help one another to show love and do good’ Hebrews 10:24`
At The Minster Junior School children are taught to do their best in a stimulating and friendly environment. With a committed and caring community of staff, parents/carers and an active Governing Body, we work hard to provide a high quality education for all the children in our School.
In 2019 we came in the top 3% of schools in the country for academic progress; a remarkable achievement.
We believe that every moment a child is in school must be used effectively. All our structures and policies are designed to maximise the learning potential of the time our children spend in school. Staff encourage every child to produce work of high quality and to co-operate well with others. There is an emphasis on good behaviour and teachers adopt a firm but fair approach.
We aim to make our children’s learning experience varied and inclusive; raising standards, particularly in literacy and numeracy, remains our main objective. While the acquisition of basic skills is important, we also have great provision for sport and music and our children participate in borough events and festivals. The School has close links with Croydon Minster and clergy regularly lead collective worship. Many pupils are choristers there.
We are a Values School and each month we focus on one value and how we can all improve the way we live out that value both individually and collectively. A value is a focus of our daily act of collective worship.
If your child is transferring from The Minster Nursery & Infant School, or if you are moving from elsewhere, we look forward to welcoming you and your child to our School. If you would like to meet with us to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact the School office.
