The School occupies two sites, Byron House and Senior House, some 200 yards apart, across Grange Road from the extensive playing fields owned by and shared with St John's College.  At Byron House, the Junior Department houses approximately 120 pupils (about 40 per year in two co-educational classes) aged 4-6.  It is also home to about 120 pupils (in three co-educational classes per year) in the 7-8 age range.  The Senior House site houses boys and girls aged 9 - 13 (approximately 220 pupils in all). 

Byron House provides outstanding facilities for 4-9 year olds, including specialist Music, DT, ICT facilities, a Junior Library, Drama/Assembly Room, a Hall/Stage/Dining Room/Gymnasium, Individual and Small Group Teaching rooms.   The interior spaces at Byron House have also been completely redesigned, offering bright, spacious classrooms and a new large learning space for child-initiated learning and digital learning.
 
Senior House contains specialist facilities such as the Chapel, Theatre, Gymnasium, Science Laboratories, Library, DT Room, Art Room, ICT Rooms, Swimming Pool and Music School.  The whole school has been networked as part of an ICT development plan which has, for some years, placed St John’s at the forefront in this area.  The Senior House site has been completely redeveloped. New classrooms, an outstanding library, a new DT and computer control and graphics facility, two new Science labs, a new Drama studio, new Music facilities, a new multi-sports court and excellent staff facilities are now in place.
 
A new boarding house is a short walk away from Senior House and accommodates up to 40 boys and girls, twenty of whom are the Choristers.
