Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic College. When speaking to prospective parents I usually start with the question what do we want for our children? Our answer in St Joseph’s is that we want them to be happy and we want them to achieve to their full potential. Our aim is to provide a caring and supportive environment in which each individual can progress academically, spiritually and culturally. We believe that there should be no ceiling on achievement and that in each student there is the potential to succeed. We are a Catholic College and that ethos allows us to nurture the young people in our care so they feel safe, developing a sense of respect for themselves, others and the environment. We are an inclusive community which sets high standards in all that we do. We believe in motivating young people by providing them with the best learning opportunities within and beyond the classroom. We want all of our students to leave us equipped to face the future.
I hope that by looking at this website you will get a flavour of what we are about. You are always welcome to visit us and see what makes St Joseph’s such a special place.
