Welcome to Saint John Bosco College
Welcome to Saint John Bosco College, an 11–18 Roman Catholic School for the London Borough of Wandsworth, which opened in September 2011. We were judged a Good School with ‘outstanding leadership’ in our Ofsted inspection, March 2013 and the same in March 2014 by the Archdiocese of Southwark. A voluntary-aided school within the trusteeship of the Salesians of Don Bosco and the Archdiocese of Southwark, our ethos is based on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and the educational approach of Saint John Bosco. Whilst our admissions policy gives priority to children in Catholic primary schools, we welcome students from other faiths and backgrounds, and we lay particular emphasis on respecting diversity and celebrating the dignity of each and every person. Founded on the educational philosophy of Saint John Bosco, which places great store on the importance of relationships, we are a school which is committed to being inclusive and developing excellence and achievement with all our learners. Our aim is to achieve excellence with each and every student, irrespective of what challenges they may face. Working in partnership with parents and carers, our goal is quite clear: to ensure that our students develop with grace, balance and wisdom as human beings who are able, in the words of the prophet Micah, “to act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with God.” In seeking academic excellence with each and every learner, we will ensure that they are able to face the personal and global challenges of an ever changing and complex world, both during their time at school and after they leave us to take up their place in society.
We will move in to our new building in Surrey Lane, Battersea, at the end of September 2015. Until then, we will be based in temporary accommodation in Princes Way, SW19. If you feel that you would like to be part of this outstanding experience, we would be delighted to hear from you so that we can tell you more about the College, explain how we work and answer any questions you may have.
