St Joseph's RC High School

St Joseph's RC High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children
and young people and, expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment

You will be surprised how quickly you get to know the layout of the buildings at St. Joseph’s!  Many subjects are taught in special areas of the school. You will be given your own personal copy of our site plan to keep in your blazer pocket, on your first day.


Pupil Entry/Exit from School Premises

Before School/Registrations

1)  Students who register in rooms 11, 12, D1, D2, S1, S2 and S6 should enter through the door at the bottom of the boys’ stairs.

2)  Students who register in any of the tower block rooms (1-10) should enter through the main entrance doors.

3)  Students who register in the Brain Brady Centre (23-28) should enter using the main door to the building.

4)  Students who register in S3, S4 and S5 should line up outside the respective rooms until told to enter.

5) Students who register in the Yates Building should enter as instructed by Form Tutors.


At Break Times/Change of Lessons

Students entering the main school building to go to rooms in the tower block should use the main entrance doors.  Students going to rooms 11, 12, 13, D1, D2, S1, S2 & S6 should enter at the bottom of the boys’ stairs.


All students should walk on the left hand side of the corridor/stairs.


End of School

Students should not leave the building at 3.30pm or any other time, except in an emergency by the fire doors nearer the water machine on the main corridor, nor by any other fire door.


Students must not enter or leave via the main drive because of the dangers presented by vehicles entering and leaving the service road in front of the school.  Those pupils who are not catching one of the buses on the school drive in an evening should leave via the Sefton Lane gate.  Under no circumstances should students go into Arrowsmith Court.


When students are walking up Sefton Lane towards Chorley New Road, they should exercise great care as they pass the point where the school drive exits on to Sefton Lane.  They should always give way to any vehicle leaving the school drive.


No one should ever get themselves into a position where they are caught between a vehicle and the wall or the fence.  They should wait, well out of the way, until the vehicle has gone.
