It is with great pride that we welcome you to the John Rankin Schools’ website.  We are a Federation of John Rankin Infant and Nursery School and John Rankin Junior School.  The schools are made up of just over 600 children and are expanding year on year as the Junior School transforms into a 3 form entry school.  The Heads of School are Mrs Sylviane Wheable at the Infants and Mrs Amy Watkins at the Juniors, who lead and manage the day to day running of the schools.

Mr Felix Rayner
Executive Headteacher

Mrs Sylviane Wheable,
Head of School JRI

Mrs Amy Watkins,
Head of School JRJ

The John Rankin Federation is a very special and unique place, primarily because of the amazing children we have in our school; their enthusiasm, dedication and commitment is wonderful and it is a genuine privilege for each and every one of us to welcome them into school each day.  They are supported by a dedicated and committed group of staff who provide excellent opportunities for them to shine and develop as individuals.  Everything we do is centred on making a positive difference for our children and families.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced and provides our children with many memorable learning experiences and various opportunities to develop their learning. We are inspired to develop our children into well-educated individuals who can become individual learners; who can make the right decisions and are prepared for the challenges that will face them in the future.

We welcome visits to our schools, simply give us a ring and we can arrange a mutually convenient time for you to come and see us for yourselves.  Enjoy your tour of the website and we look forward to hearing from you in the future.
