St Bonaventure's is a larger than average Catholic comprehensive school for boys aged between 11 and 19, located in Newham, East London. The school predominantly recruits students from the north-east London area. Currently, there are 1,303 students on roll, of whom 361 study in the school's sixth form. The sixth form is run jointly with St Angela's Ursuline School for girls. A much higher than average proportion of students is entitled to free school meals. Just over a quarter of all students have some form of learning difficulty and/or disability, predominantly moderate learning difficulties or behavioural emotional and social difficulties. The proportion of students with statemented needs is low. The proportion of students from a diverse range of minority ethnic groups is considerably higher than is usually found, with students of Black African and Black Caribbean heritage being the two largest groups. Over half of the total student cohort speaks English as a second language, which is well above average. The school has held specialist status for technology since 1994. In 2006, it gained a second specialism, for languages, and in April 2008 gained specialist status for applied learning. Since the last inspection, the school has also achieved the Healthy School award.
