To find the Parish Boundary of St Clement's and St John's as per our admissions policy please refer to the Church of England website, here is a quick link for you:

St Clement’s & St John’s Infant and Bethany Junior School admissions policy has always aimed to follow current guidelines and support the Christian Ethos of the school, Christian families and local community in line with the deeds of the school. A guiding principle of admissions to St Clement’s and St John’s Church of England Infant School and Bethany Church of England Junior School is that the schools should serve equally those who are of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith.


After reflection and discussion with local church leaders, our admissions policy was updated from 2018/19 and the criteria "active member of a Christian church" was removed from the policy to reflect this aim in line with the Diocese of Winchester's recommendation.


This does not affect our status as church schools nor diminish our commitment to developing our Christian values and distinctiveness.
