A new War Memorial website for St John’s School has been just been launched to commemorate those who served in the First World War:

Accessible to all, with no user name or password required, the School hopes that this will be of interest to pupils, parents and staff alike. For those interested in the history of St John’s, as well as those studying or researching the First World War, this archive website gives a unique insight into life at St John’s during the period 1900-1920.  Features of the War Memorial website include:

  • Roll of Honour – holds information on OJs’ wartime service and death, together with dates they attended St John’s School and photographs where available; 
  • War Memorial 1918 – a slideshow of the 42 illuminated panels produced in 1918, detailing OJs and members of staff who served in all the armed forces in the years up to and including 1918; 
  • timeline of those who died with links to a biography where available; 
  • advanced search – enabling you to search across all sections of the website or select a particular database; 
  • The Johnian magazines, 1900 – 1920; 
  • distinctions – details of those who received distinctions for military service; 
  • interactive blog with comments section (moderated) -  http://blog.stjohnsleatherheadatwar.co.uk/  - a blog about the history of St John's School, Leatherhead in wartime and those Old Johnians who served in the First and Second World Wars; and,
