St. Joseph's Catholic College

A Welcome from the Executive 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.

Year 6 Virtual Open Evening

We have worked with an external filmmaker to produce a video for St. Joseph's and whilst this cannot replace a real-life visit to the school, we hope that you'll find it a useful introduction to the College and be able to gain some insight as to what life at St. Joseph's is all about.
We'll be sharing this video on Facebook at 6.00pm on Tuesday and would welcome you to leave any questions you may have, in the comments section. We will be answering these questions in real-time, directly in the comments section below the video. It will also be able to view on the 'Primary Transition' page of our website from 6.00pm. 
If you don't want to ask your questions in a public forum, that's absolutely fine. You can send them directly to our Facebook page or school email anytime before 6.00pm. We will be collating all of the questions and answers into a document, which will be available to view on the school website the following day.
Any questions or comments can be sent to us in a direct message, or emailed to

GCSE Results

Following the announcement from Ofqual, the exam regulator, it has been confirmed that students will be awarded their centre assessment for this summer. That is the grade that their school or college estimated was the grade they would most likely have achieved in their exam, or the moderated grade, whichever is higher. The full statement can be found here:

St. Joseph’s is committed to supporting all of our students through what has been an extraordinarily difficult time, and we hope that students see their results as a fair judgment of the work that they were able to do in the time they had on the course. We wish them all the best for the next phase of their education.

Please be assured that information regarding the next steps for September will be sent next week. 

Mr P. Hughes
