Welcome To Our Outstanding School
Bonus Pastor is a school where every student is known and loved
Bonus Pastor is an outstanding over-subscribed Catholic school with a warm and caring ethos, with our faith embedded throughout all that we do. Every student is known for their individual and unique strengths in a warm-hearted and friendly atmosphere.
Our culture built on respect and one where we have exceptionally high aspirations for each person. We have a long history of excellent GCSE results and in September 2017 we were graded as ‘Outstanding’ in all categories by Ofsted.
We are a visionary, innovative and research engaged school. Teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do and our curriculum is broad and balanced, ensuring that our students achieve the very best outcomes and go onto a wide variety of career pathways. Our excellent teachers know their students well and ensure that their learning is personalised.
We have a House System, in which every student is welcomed, and through which they work collaboratively with students across the school and build friendships amongst all of their peers through competing in inter house sports and competitions, working hard to achieve house points and celebrating their Catholic faith through their House Saint.
We passionately believe in developing well rounded, responsible, Catholic citizens of the future, and so have a high regard for student enrichment and extra curricular opportunities. Ofsted 2017 commented on ‘The wealth of extra-curricular activities’ which prepare our students very well for the next steps of their education, and our BP Charter is used as a case study for other schools by the Department for Education
Our innovative teaching and ability to react to the world around us has meant that our students have been catered for brilliantly throughout the pandemic and we have committed to providing every student with a personal device to use throughout their education with us. We have been recognised as certified Google trainers and you only have to look at our weekly newsletters to see that the outstanding achievement of our pupils has continued throughout times of national crisis.
Student attendance is outstanding and we are proud that every student goes on to a suitable college, 6th form, apprenticeship or employment place that is right for them, with many then going onto university. Our thriving alumni, which includes the current Lewisham Young Mayor and many Oxbridge graduates, are regularly engaged in the success of the school and our careers advice is exceptional.
