John Pridmore Visit


John Pridmore - A former East End Gangster turned Christian who now travels internationally speaking to others about how his life changed, was speaking to pupils in Years 9, 10 and 11. The author of the international bestselling book “From Gangland to Promised Land” held everyone’s attention. At 6ft 6in, burly and bald, John had the kind of presence that made everyone stop and listen!  He spoke about his early life being brought up in the East End of London dabbling in crime by his early teens, ending up in a young offenders institute and then a borstal. By his 20s he was well-acquainted with the capital’s criminal underworld and violence became a way of life.


John has dedicated his life to Christianity, touring the world giving talks to young people.He has spoken to more than a million people and met the Pope and Mother Teresa. You can watch YouTube videos of his talks of how he turned his life around. John has been living in a religious community in County Leitrim in the west of Ireland, from where he travels the world teaching others. We were extremely fortunate to have John in school thanks to Father Frankie who is a close friend of John Pridmore.




We were delighted to receive the final report from our recent OFSTED inspection, which rated the school "Outstanding" in all areas.
