From January 1st 2022, CHANGE Schools Partnership merged with The Compass Partnership of Schools and John Ray Junior School is now part of this group of schools.
The Compass Partnership of Schools is a Trust of 10 primary schools and one all-through special school spanning London and Essex. We are committed to delivering the very best education to all children through high quality teaching and a knowledge-rich curriculum. 
We will be updating school websites over the coming term and will be working hard to align systems and processes across the Trust.

The Compass Partnership of Schools


John Ray Junior School is a four-form entry junior school catering for children from 7-11.  We also work in close partnership with our neighbouring infant school as well as other local primary schools.

Our school is a calm and purposeful environment where each child is valued and feels part of the school community. We work hard to promote the social, moral and cultural development of children so they develop positive relationships with staff and each other to help them to build confidence, independence and resilience.  Our core values of respect, trust, responsibility, courage, perseverance and hope are well known by everyone in our school community and children use these values in all aspects of school life.   Our children are happy at school and the staff work hard to ensure that learning is exciting, fun and memorable.  We want every child to master the core skills of English and mathematics and for them to learn through a rich and creative curriculum. In short, we want to create a learning community that has every child skipping through our gates each day!

If you are a new parent considering sending your child to our school or a potential member of staff, we hope that our website gives you a flavour of what we have to offer. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions or queries. Visits to the school are very welcome and can be arranged by contacting the school office.


I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
