St John Bosco Catholic Primary Careers Site Eteach (15890)


All parents want their children to feel safe, secure and happy at school. They also want their children to achieve. At St John Bosco Catholic Primary all children are encouraged, supported and challenged to become the best they can be.

We are a Catholic school with our mission - 'Learning, Living and Growing in God's Love'.

Although academic success is important, we endeavor to develop the ‘whole’ child providing enjoyable and creative experiences within which to flourish.

In summary, our school is much more than just an educational establishment. It is a place which offers children the stability and enrichment that they need to become the unique individuals God created them to be.  We provide an ethos where children learn effectively and develop into well rounded and responsible Catholic citizens.
