An Outstanding Catholic School
Believe and Achieve
I am delighted to welcome you to our school.
At St John Bosco College we believe that there is no limit on what our students can achieve. With great teaching, a strong curriculum, and a caring, nurturing ethos; we provide an excellent environment where children thrive. This has been clearly demonstrated by our recent 'outstanding' Section 48 Inspection and another year of record results at GCSE in which our students achieved a progress 8 score of +0.6, which puts us in the top 5% of schools nationally.
Our students work hard but also enjoy life in school. There is a full menu of enrichment activities for them to choose from; sporting, work experience, cultural and charitable. Through these our pupils learn and grow beyond the confines of the classroom. We believe that these opportunities enable our students to develop into well-rounded young men and women who leave here fully equipped for life beyond school.
Our school’s distinctive Salesian ethos is based on St John Bosco’s vision that ‘it is not enough for every child to be loved… they must know that they are loved’. We provide strong pastoral support and a high level of care for every student, regardless of their background. We are a community where everyone is highly valued as an individual.
We are proud of our students and our school community and we warmly invite you to join us.
