Be the best you can be ....

Our hopes for the children of John Wilkinson School:

You will understand that learning is fun but that hard work is always necessary to succeed and be the best you can be. You will not be afraid to try and will understand that we all learn from our mistakes. You will leave our school knowing your strengths and feeling successful.
You will have a well rounded education which equips you for the future. You will have memorable experiences which you will always remember. You will respect others, their similarities and differences.
