Ss. John and Monica's is a Catholic Voluntary Aided School, within the Archdiocese of Birmingham, and in the local authority area of the City of Birmingham.
History of the School
Our school was built in 1969 and opened for its first pupils in September 1970. It was originally built as a Junior school and was called St Monica’s. The Infants or KS1 children were taught in a school next to our parish church St John and Martin’s. The Infant school was called St John’s. In 1980 the two schools amalgamated to become SS John and Monica’s.
SS. John and Monica Catholic Primary School opened in September 1980, following the amalgamation of the St. John's Infant and St. Monica's Junior Schools. The school serves the Parish of SS. John and Martin and draws its children from the Balsall Heath/Moseley/Edgbaston area.
As a Catholic School, the basic religious ethos is to be found across the whole curriculum and not just within religious education lessons. The aim of the school is to encourage the Christian growth of the child.
SS. John and Monica Catholic Primary School recognises the need for children to be equipped with the necessary intellectual and life skills, to be able to move on to their next stage of education and beyond. Our wish is for our pupils to make a positive contribution to their communities now and in the future.
