Beyond St John's

As part of the Merchant Taylors’ Educational Trust, there is a strong tradition of pupils from St John’s going on to Merchant Taylors’ and every year many boys are successful in gaining places and indeed scholarships. 

Some pupils take up places at Haberdashers’, Harrow, Berkhamsted, St Alban’s, Aldenham, Mill Hill and John Lyon. Occasionally a boy will go on to Westminster, City of London, St Paul’s, Eton or a country boarding school. Some boys gain 11+ places at other local schools.
