St John Bosco College is a school in the joint trusteeship of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark and the Salesians of Don Bosco.

With the Sacred Heart Parish Church and the Salesian Community House next door, we are very much part of the Salesian mission in Battersea and beyond. 

Founded by St John Bosco in the 19th century, the Salesian order first had a presence in Battersea in the 1890s, one which has remained here ever since.

The Salesian family has grown from humble beginnings in Turin, NE Italy to worldwide family with schools, parishes and community groups in over 130 countries across the globe.
