Deputy Head's Comment
When John Colet was established in 1985, the advice given to Mrs McKendrick and Mrs Donald by the worldwide founder Leon MacLaren was to make sure that the study of Sanskrit, Singing and Shakespeare play a prominent role in the curriculum. These three subjects nourish children at the spiritual, mental and physical level no matter what their individual abilities may be. Despite the challenges of fitting these three subjects into an already full curriculum, we have stayed true to this directive. We have found and continue to find that this provides every child with a deep and rich experience in education.
