“We dream the same dreams… and we dream them… together.”

A Warm Welcome From The Federation Headteacher


Welcome to our web pages for St John's and St Chrysostom's Church of England Primary Schools, Manchester. 

Two schools with one Christian vision to provide the very best educational experience to prepare our children to engage with their local communities, for secondary education and discover the self belief of independent learners. The two schools have excellent standards of behaviour, value faith and the development of the whole child.

Since 2017 we have been developing our curriculum to ensure that we have relevant skills and knowledge being taught to our children so that they will be well prepared for life.  We work hard to plan regular parent events to ensure parents and carers are involved in the life of the school. Parents are invited to 'stay and play' each week when their child starts school in reception class. 

Both schools serve a diverse catchment and have a wonderful mix of children and staff from the Greater Manchester area. We have places in classes (including Nursery and reception) for 2020.   If you are a parent and would like to arrange a visit please contact the school office. I look forward to meeting you.
