St John Bosco Arts College celebrate open evening success
This year, St John Bosco Arts College created an immersive experience at its open evening where pupils explored the world of Bosco through a range of department-led activities facilitated by staff and current students.
In the English department, visitors were encouraged to create their own masks for a Shakespearean-themed ball. There was also an opportunity to get creative in the postcard poetry workshop or get quizzical with the classic literature quiz.
In true science style, the department took a practical approach to the event, featuring activities and experiments in biology, chemistry and physics.
Over in the art and technology departments, visitors could test their taste buds with cuisines from around the world or try their hand at creative art.
The event also featured an admissions village, which saw current students deliver tours of the school’s state-of-the-art facilities. The village also offered parents and carers the opportunity to ask any questions surrounding admissions, learn more about life at Bosco and get to know the staff.
In the dining area, visitors got a more literal taste of the school as they sampled options from the lunch menu.
The event began with a welcome from headteacher, Darren Gidman, who addressed a record number of attendees.
Synonymous with their values, the school is committed to fostering an environment where students can flourish in faith, hope and love.
Speaking on the success of the event, headteacher at St John Bosco Arts College, Darren Gidman, said: “The open evening is a real highlight of the calendar year. It is an opportunity for prospective pupils to get to know us and discover what we can offer them.
“The Bosco community is the beating heart of our school, and each year that community grows as we welcome new students and their families.
“It was fantastic to meet so many new faces, and I look forward to welcoming the next generation of Bosco students next year.”
Applications for 2024 admissions are available on the school’s website.
