Monday 5th February 2024:


"Many across Lancashire and the whole country will have been shocked to hear the news about the health His Majesty the King this evening.

"Since King Charles III succeeded Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the throne less than two years ago the affection and love in which he is held by the nation has been evident for all to see and has only grown further.

"On behalf of the entire Church of England in Lancashire - our many parishes and schools - I send my prayers and very best wishes to the King at this difficult time.

"We give thanks that the discovery of the cancer, during recent medical treatment, has allowed swift intervention by doctors.

"And, as The King now embarks on his course of treatment, we also pray for the whole Royal Family and particularly Her Majesty Queen Camilla.

"May they find comfort and healing in Jesus and may His Majesty swiftly return to the life of service at which he so excels."

Please join us as we pray for the King and his family.


On behalf of the children, staff and governors at Higham St. John's,  I would like to wish you a warm welcome to our school website.  Higham St. John’s is a wonderful place to be and I feel privileged to be a part of our very special community.

We aim to provide an education that develops all children to their full potential. We seek to ignite curiosity and a life-long enthusiasm for learning within a safe, happy and creative environment.  Our Christian ethos and values underpin all we aim to do and we encourage our children to respect one another and be kind. We have high expectations at Higham St. John’s and support every child to try their best in all they do.  The children come to school keen to learn and willing to work hard and as a result, make very good progress and achieve well across the full range of subjects. 

We nurture children's individual talents through providing a diverse curriculum and by offering a wide range trips, experiences and extra-curricular activities. If you would like to arrange a visit to our school or would like further information, please visit our contacts page. 

Best wishes,  Mrs Shaw
