PE

St John Bosco provides a sports programme that has a positive influence on all ages and abilities of pupils. We aim to develop every pupil’s interest in sport, from aspiring internationals to those for whom sport is just part of a healthy lifestyle, by maximising every pupil’s potential, regardless of the level of sport that they play.To help us achieve this, we offer outstanding facilities and an exceptional team of teachers and coaches, this level of support guarantees the best possible environment for every pupil to develop their skills.

St John Bosco offers a choice of over ten sports and an ever-increasing number of teams represent the School at fixtures against other schools, enabling pupils to experience competitive sport on a regular basis and providing opportunities to compete in sport and other activities building character and helping to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Pupils are expected to participate in the main sports during their junior years, before progressing to a wider range of options as they move up the School.
