Welcome to our community. Whether you are already a member of the St Joseph’s family, considering joining us as a student, a prospective parent or would like to work at St Joseph’s we hope that you will sense the warmth of our vibrant community.

St Joseph’s is a well-established Catholic school with a fantastic reputation for the very highest of standards, outstanding pupils and exceptional staff. Our Catholic mission and ethos is at the centre of all that we do. We are committed to caring for each individual student. If you are prepared to work hard you will find St Joseph’s a supportive and challenging environment.

We are proud of our school; the young people, staff, their families and our community.  We are passionate about working as a team to improve our provision for young people.   In March 2019 Ofsted commented  “Leaders are dynamic and determined to drive improvement across all areas of the school…Pupils’ conduct around the school is good. They feel safe and secure.”

The Governing Body and Senior Leadership Team are proud of the recent improvements in our school but are ambitious to become the best school possible for our young people. We don’t always get things right every time but it is our ambition that St Joseph’s will  be a place where, due to a strong sense of belonging young people achieve beyond their own imaginations.  Progress outcomes for all students but especially for the most able, disadvantaged and those with SEND will be above national.   It is our aim that St Joseph’s will be a desirable place to work and learn as Learning and Teaching will be characterised by practitioners who are hungry to grow, learning from each other developing practice to have more profound impact on the lives of young people. The school environment is increasingly inspiring and we celebrate the life changing opportunities available to every young person through the curriculum, the bucket list and extracurricular activities, trips and other experiences.

At St Joseph’s we promote academic excellence and an experience that enables young people to grow into an adult who can have a positive impact on the world.   Being part of our community is a life changing adventure. We seek to nurture the spiritual development of each individual student. We aim to develop the belief and self-confidence of each student so that they can achieve their potential, regardless of their ability and realise their dreams and ambitions. In short, we believe that we are building the Kingdom of God here on earth at St Joseph’s.

We are ‘game changers’, educating young people to change the world for the better.

If you would like to help us change the world, or wish to find out more about St Joseph’s, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to help.
