Our vision

Welcome from the Executive Headteacher

Felix Rayner Headteacher at John Rankin schools

The John Rankin Federation is a special and unique place.

I am proud to have over 600 amazing children whose enthusiasm, dedication and commitment are wonderful, within our schools. It is a genuine privilege for each and every one of us to welcome them into school each day. They are supported by my dedicated group of staff who inspire and encourage them to shine and develop as individuals. Everything we do is focused on making a positive difference for our children and families, we inspire to learn and challenge to achieve.

We are a Federation comprising John Rankin Nursery School, John Rankin Infant School and John Rankin Junior School. As Executive Headteacher, I have overall responsibility for the Federation. The Deputy Headteachers are Matt Percy, Neda Stephenson and Christina Allison (Special Educational Needs) who lead and manage the day-to-day running of the schools.

Our curriculum is broad, balanced and provides our children with many memorable learning experiences and opportunities to develop their learning. We are committed to nurturing our children into well-educated individuals, who can make the right decisions and are prepared for the challenges they will face in the future. We welcome visits to our schools and urge you to give us a ring, so we can arrange for you to come and see us for yourselves. Enjoy your time on our website and we look forward to hearing from you.

Executive Headteacher
