Thank you for visiting the St John Bosco College website.  I am proud to welcome you to our wonderful 11-18 Roman Catholic, Salesian school based in the heart of Battersea, SW London.

We are a successful, growing school which this year celebrated its best exam results ever with our year 11 pupils achieving a projected GCSE Progress 8 score of +0.3, in effect achieving over a quarter of a grade better than expected progress and putting us among the top schools nationally.

With a small, nurturing sixth form continuing to achieve excellent A Level results and send young men and women on to top universities, we are delighted to offer a pathway to success all the way through from year 7 to year 13 for all the girls and boys who come through our doors.

Whilst we are rightly proud of our modern buildings in the heart of Battersea we are equally proud that our school is built on a religious and educational tradition stretching back to the 19th century. Our founder St John Bosco, first established his ‘Oratario’ in Turin, Italy, in the 1840s on the principles of high educational standards and sound moral and religious education.

St John Bosco’s educational philosophy was rooted in his faith and has been summarized as ‘reason, religion and kindness’. We aim to educate our pupils with these three words in mind, focusing on their academic and spiritual development and modelling the values of love and forgiveness found in the gospel. Everything that we do can be summarised by our commitment to RUAH: Respect, Understanding, Affection and Humour.

At St John Bosco College each child is known personally by staff and is well-supported throughout their time at school to achieve to the very best of their abilities in a happy and positive environment.
