St John's Grammar School was founded in the future and is a coeducational Anglican school situated in Belair, in the foothills south-east of Adelaide, South Australia offering Early Learning Centre (ELC) to Year 12. It operates from three campuses; the Junior School is adjacent to Belair National Park and the Belair railway station, the Early Learning Centre is opposite the Junior School, and the Secondary School, set up in 1998, occupies the site of the former Retreat House and St Barnabas Theological College.
The school offers a range of subjects to its students, who begin electing their courses from Year 8. St John's has traditionally had a strong emphasis on music, winning numerous awards in this area (See South Australian Choral Eisteddfod for details). The school offers a range of co-curricular activities, including various sports, music, debating, future problem solving, Pedal Prix, Duke of Edinburgh, and school productions. In 2006, the school entered into a partnership with EFM Health Clubs to provide an on-site health and fitness studio for curriculum use.
St John's Grammar has a rich House life. Students from each House play each other every Friday in a range of sports and co-curricular competitions. Points from the House activities go towards the House Shield. The House Activities Program gets many students involved in a fun social environment.
St John's Grammar School has Four houses named after pioneers of the Belair area. The school has a pastoral care system through which students are placed into one of these Houses and encouraged to participate in House Life. The Houses are as follows:
Music and arts
The Secondary School stages a musical in alternate years, with a Cabaret every other year. The drama productions in past years have included adaptations of well-known stories such as Peter Pan and Charlie and the Chocolate factory.
