Curriculum Rationale

As embodied in our Mission Statement, the purpose of St John Bosco Arts College is to nurture the 'gifts, dreams and talents of all in the spirit of St John Bosco'. This principle lies at the heart of the curriculum within St John Bosco Arts College.

We believe our students should be provided with a broad, balanced, relevant, coherent, progressive curriculum with the Ebacc at the core. This curriculum should promote spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of the pupils and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

The curriculum aims to enable all pupils to become:

  • Creative learners – who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve well
  • Confident individuals – who are able to lead safe and healthy lives
  • Caring citizens – who make a positive contribution to society

Equality of access and opportunity is central to our curriculum provision for all. All pupils will receive the full entitlement of the National Curriculum in Key Stages 3 and 4 with appropriate adaptations made to support understanding and deepen knowledge as appropriate.
