Joining Us in Year 7

One of the biggest challenges that any student faces during their academic career is the transfer from primary to secondary school. We are confident that we have an excellent transition programme to ensure that students settle in quickly and enjoy their first few weeks at St John Bosco College. This includes close relationships with our feeder primary schools; opportunities for students to visit the school, for instance to watch school productions, taster sessions or take part in the community clubs and classes; and an effective induction process to familiarise students and families with the school before and after their arrival.
