A very warm welcome to St John Bosco Arts College’s website. Our college is an exciting, vibrant and dynamic girls’ Catholic comprehensive school which has a very distinctive Salesian ethos grounded in support, care and a warm friendly atmosphere.
We believe in developing a rounded individual so that students are prepared for life academically, spiritually, morally and socially. In our school community we seek to nurture the gifts, dreams and talents of all in the spirit of St John Bosco.
The college is at the cutting edge of teaching and learning and thrives on providing the best opportunities to the young people that it serves and is one of only 835 schools in England granted teaching school status. The state of the art building and facilities help to make our students feel calm and safe.
All of our staff go the extra mile to ensure that our young people succeed in developing the necessary skills and knowledge to prepare for the next stage in their educational journey and able to compete in an ever increasing globalised market. St John Bosco Arts College is a happy school where students are keen to learn, are respectful and are supported by a strong pastoral team.
Inspired by the example of St John Bosco, the purpose of our College is to react to the needs of each individual student, touching their hearts and developing their talents and creative skills.
Our College is dedicated to serving the young people and families of our community through faith, hard work and dedication. I am very proud and privileged to be the headteacher of such a fantastic school and look forward to seeing you when you visit.
