Click to enlarge

During the expansion of the village in the 1950s the site of the manorial hall was developed to house first a Grammar school and then additionally a Secondary Modern.  Both schools were later combined in 1965 to make up the current John Port School, one of the largest Secondary schools in the entire country. Each day almost as many people come into the village to the school as live there. John Port School became an Academy in April 2011.

Each year the school holds a ‘Leavers Day’ celebrations for the Year 11 students. To view the slideshow for July 2016 please click here
