applying for a place at St John Bosco College
Applying for a place in Year 7 for September 2021
We are a Roman Catholic, Salesian school, a Christian community based on gospel values, with an approach shaped by the life and example of St John Bosco. We welcome applications from all members of the community and we lay particular emphasis on respecting diversity and celebrating the dignity of each and every person.
With the social distancing restrictions currently in place our summer programme of tours and visits to the school has sadly been put on hold. However parents of children in Year 6 looking for a place in our Year 7 intake for September 2021 are encouraged to keep checking the website for updates on when this programme will resume. In the meantime please do have a look at our virtual tour and keep up to date with all that is happening at SJBC via our regular newsletters.
We hope that our open events will still be able to go ahead as planned on:
- Saturday 12 September - Open Morning 9.00-11.00am
- Thursday 24 September - Open Evening 5.30-7.30pm
If we are unable to hold these 'live' in September then we will host online events at those dates/times. Details will be confirmed on our website in September should this be the case.
We are also hopeful that in September prospective parents and their children will be able to arrange private tours of the school at times to suit you. You will be able to contact us by email at email@example.com to book yours.
Applications for admission into Year 7 are coordinated by the local authority in which you live. All parents will need to complete the Common Application Form and submit this, usually online, by 31 October. Wandsworth residents can find information on the admissions process here. For residents of other boroughs please contact your local authority for further details.
We encourage applicants who come from a faith background to complete our supplementary information form (SIF) which you can download from this website.
