St. Joseph's Catholic College

A Welcome from the Co-Principals

‘We place Students at the heart of everything we do’

Welcome to St. Joseph’s Catholic College. We are a popular College with a proud Catholic Heritage and exceptional staff that provide our students with a high standard of education in an inclusive environment. We are very proud of our students, and we value and celebrate their diverse range of backgrounds and beliefs, and all that this brings to our community.

Everything we do at St. Joseph’s is underpinned by our core values of respect, inclusivity, equality, nurturing, growth, and accountability. We feel that encouraging students to adopt these values will help them to grow into reflective young adults who will make a positive contribution in the world. Read more...
