main-Fr Saju Plus RUAH for S48 July 19

Chaplain Fr Saju John SDB with the College's RUAH badge


Inspectors from the Diocese of Southwark declared St John Bosco College Battersea "Outstanding" in a report published this week, following a two day inspection under Section 48 of the Education Act. This provides for regular inspections by the Bishop, of the Catholic life, Religious Education and collective worship in the schools of his Diocese.


The inspectors found the students "happy and confident", and were impressed by their motivation to learn, and by the support expressed by parents they spoke to. They commented on the strong Salesian ethos of the school, and its inclusive, caring environment, where students "spoke warmly of the support, praise and encouragement they receive."

On 31st January, we celebrate and give thanks for St John Bosco, our founder. Surrounded by poor young people in urban Turin in the nineteenth century, he recognised their difficulties; their need to be loved and respected; and he created an educational approach based on valuing and nurturing the young that would enable them to feel loved and to thrive.
