who was bosco
John Bosco was warmly known as Don Bosco. He was an Italian Roman Catholic priest, educator and author. In the mid-nineteenth century, Don Bosco reached out to small communities to educate and provide life chances for disadvantaged youths. Central to his work was fostering an educational system with ‘loving kindness’ at it’s centre; putting the Word of God truly into practice. At Bosco, we aim to help model these ideals and be a part of developing larger educational communities which do aim to build a better world; or ‘the kingdom’!
our aims and ethos
At Bosco, our core purpose is about developing life long learners. We firmly believe that getting better never stops. We aim to inspire, nurture and develop the talents and skills of teachers of all experiences, to become outstanding classroom practitioners. We are a faith-based teaching school, founded as part of the Bosco Catholic Education Trust. Our mission is to share our expertise and collaborate with the wider educational community to enable outstanding teaching and learning across Sussex and beyond.
