Welcome to the Prep School

Within our outstanding facilities and extensive grounds, we blend the very best of the traditions of an independent school with the most cutting-edge educational resources and practices. Children are provided with a multitude of academic, artistic, and sporting opportunities. These are enriched by a stunning array of educational trips and an extensive range of extra-curricular clubs and activities.

We feel sure you wish your child to reach their full potential whilst being happy, helpful and healthy. In each child we nurture a desire to pursue and achieve excellence, to be vibrant and creative, to build strong values and lifelong friendships, and to embrace everything that the future brings.

Parental support and partnerships are vital to our success. Together, our children start looking outside of themselves and seeing how they can contribute within and beyond school. They come to believe that when you try to be the best you can be, then everything is possible.

I can only give you a sense of the spirit and togetherness between pupils, parents and staff which draws comment from all our visitors. At St Joseph’s College we want your child to enjoy every single minute of their time with us. I encourage you to come and experience the atmosphere for yourself and hope that I will have the opportunity to welcome you to the school, to share my passion for the education we can offer and to talk about your child and what is right for them.
