A Successful Application

Many congratulations for applying to a successful secondary school where our students are happy, hardworking and successful; they thrive in a Salesian ethos which promotes Christian values, high expectations and exemplary behaviour. We aim to provide every child with the ability to develop lively, enquiring and creative minds, and the skills and abilities to reach the highest personal and academic standards.

Once you have received notification from the LEA stating your application has been successful it is important that you confirm your acceptance/decline of the place in writing as soon as possible as the school has a waiting list. You can do this by emailing office@stjohnbosco.org.uk or you can write to the school.

  • Thursday 18th June & Wednesday 24th June – Intake Appointments will be issued from 3.30pm onwards on one of these dates
  • Wednesday 8th July – Transition Day at St John Bosco Arts College
  • Thursday 27th August– Uniform Distribution Day – your daughter will be issued with a free school uniform to start her secondary school career
