I was delighted to be appointed as the Headteacher of St John Bosco Arts College on the 1st January 2016 and would like to offer you a very warm welcome.
This college is at the cutting edge of teaching and learning and thrives on providing the best opportunities to the young people that it serves. All of our staff go the extra mile to ensure that our young people succeed in developing the necessary skills to compete in an ever increasing globalised market.
We became an Arts College in 2004; a leading Edge School after being assessed by the DFES as a high performing school in 2012 and a Teaching school in 2013.
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.
