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.

St. Joseph’s athletes crowned County Champions!

Congratulations to Joseph and Teresa who were crowned Wiltshire champions on Saturday 10th June.  Joseph won his event and goes on to represent the county at the 300m.  Teresa won one event and came second in her other and has been selected for both the 100m and 200m.  Both students will now represent Wiltshire at the South West Championships, held in Exeter on Saturday 17th June.  Good luck to both of them!


First Aid

The College has a legal requirement under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, to provide first aid in the workplace. Therefore, our qualified First Aid staff can provide initial help or treatment of a sudden illness or injury until the parent is able to collect and seek treatment with their local doctor.

Our Medical Officer is one of the First Aid team and is not a qualified nurse. Therefore, if your child has been unwell or had a minor accident/incident the day before, advice should be sought at your GP surgery or walk in centre and not sent to college the next day to see Medical Officer. The same applies if your child has been vomiting, had diarrhoea or had a fever, they should not be sent to school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the college.
