Applying for a place at St John Bosco College

Applying for a place at St John Bosco College

Applying for a place in Year 7 for September 2021

We would love to hear from you.  St John Bosco College is an outstanding Roman Catholic, Salesian school, a Christian community based on gospel values, with an approach shaped by the life and example of St John Bosco. We welcome applications from all members of the community and we place a strong emphasis on respecting diversity and celebrating the dignity of each and every person. 

We had a great turnout at our open morning and evening events on 12 and 21 September.  Because of the exceptional circumstances this year, they took the form of a socially distanced tour for each family with an individual member of staff. 

Given the popularity of these events, which were quickly fully booked we have extended our offer to parents wishing to book a tour of the school between now and half-term.  Individual family tours are available from Monday to Thursday between 3pm-4pm (for Covid -19 safety reasons we can only run tours while our students are off site) until 22 October.

Appointments for these events must be booked in advance so that we can manage numbers attending.  To book an appointment please telephone the school on 0207 924 8310 or email 

For those of you who can't visit us in person we would urge you to look at our welcome video, read our newsletters and find out what our parents say about us on this website.  Should you wish to have a telephone or Zoom meeting with a member of staff to ask questions and find out more about St John Bosco College contact us on the number or email address above and we would be delighted to arrange this for you.

Applications for admission into Year 7 are coordinated by the local authority in which you live.  All parents will need to complete the Common Application Form and submit this, usually online, by 31 October.  Wandsworth residents can find information on the admissions process here.  For residents of other boroughs please contact your local authority for further details.

We encourage applicants who come from a faith background to complete our supplementary information form (SIF) which you can download from this website.
