Our Motto - Every child nurtured, valued and empowered to succeed.


We pride ourselves on being a nurturing school. We believe in working with pupils and families to remove barriers to learning so every child can reach their full potential. Every child in SJBC receives the highest possible standards of pastoral care.


We value each and every pupil and strive to give them a voice in how their education is shaped. Our Student Council meets regularly to bring about positive changed suggested by our pupils to improve their school experience.


We aim to equip our pupils with the skills and confidence to follow their dreams, succeed in the working world and, most importantly, to be valuable contributors to society.
