Welcome to St John Boste RC Primary School

We hope you find the information on our website useful and helpful in finding out more about our school and our aims.

A message from our Head Teacher

"I feel proud and privileged to be able to welcome you to our lovely school. Here at St John Boste we see ourselves as one big family, caring for our pupils in a friendly, secure and happy environment. We have a dedicated team of staff who work hard to provide a stimulating and engaging curriculum to ensure our pupils are given the best possible opportunities to succeed, whilst at the same time enjoying their learning.

Our pupils help make our school what it is; they always make us proud with their fantastic attitude towards their learning, their willingness and drive to do well, their enthusiasm when faced with new challenges and the way they treat others with care and respect. Our parents and families also play an important part in the success of our school, and we highly value the support they consistently give to their children and the school community. I hope you enjoy your visit to our website. If you would like to know more, just give us a call. Alternatively, you are welcome to call in, our door is always open!''

Our School Vision

"Each one of us is God's work of art"

In the children's words...

At St John Boste School we are one big happy family, always trying to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

We learn, grow and develop together knowing that Jesus is always at our side. We work hard to be the best young people we can be.

We will always try our best and be proud of the efforts and achievements of ourselves and of others.

We will love and care for others, sharing our talents, gifts and kindness, to help make the world a happy place to live in for everyone.
