St. Joseph's Catholic College

A Welcome from the Principal

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.

Dear Parents,

The College site is closed to cars between 2.45pm and 3.15pm in order to limit the risk posed to the large number of pedestrians leaving the site at the end of the school day.

Some parents who wish to pick their children up at 3.00pm have been choosing to park in the nearby Railway-Sidings housing estate, on Culverhouse Road. Local residents have complained about this parking causing an inconvenience by blocking drop-curb driveways and by obstructing pedestrian access to the pavement, with cars mounting the curb.

We would like to urge all parents who wish to pick-up their children at 3.00pm to use the Tesco carpark nearest the College. There is plenty of room for parking and the children can walk safely to the carpark along Ocotal Way without having to cross the road, which is necessary to reach Culverhouse Road.

We would greatly appreciate it if parents could stop using Culverhouse Road as a pick-up point.

Thank you for your support in this matter.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Stoten
Assistant Principal KS3
