In Saint John Bosco College, we believe that learning does not just take place in the classroom. When students enrol with us, we will commit to 12 personal learning pledges which will ensure this happens. We support the wider development of students through a broad enrichment programme, which is an entitlement for all students, and there is an expectation that everyone will take part in it. Activities include competitive team sports, drama productions, musical concerts, public speaking, debating and art exhibitions.
The curriculum is put in context through regular trips and visits to the theatre, concerts, museums, art galleries and sporting events. As part of our specialism, students will have a direct involvement with business and enterprise at all key stages, both within the classroom, but also in setting personal goals and targets for themselves, for the remainder of their time at school and for their future lives. Student Voice will be central to our way of working, and will be organised through our House and College Councils, as well as through the Prefect Systems in Years 11, 12 and 13. Our Head Girl and Boy will meet regularly with the Principal and other staff to play their part in the running of the College.
