Welcome to St Joseph's College

The staff and I are delighted to have re-connected with our current students for Christmas Term 2020 and to have welcomed many new families.

St Joseph’s College Ipswich is rightly proud of it's excellent attainment at public examinations this summer, including record-breaking A-level results.

47% A*- A

72% A*- B 

93% A*- C 

We also achieved exceptionally fine results across the BTEC subjects, with the average grade being a Distinction or above. At GCSE 98% of students were awarded Grade 4 or above in English Language and 88% were awarded Grade 4 or above in Mathematics. This will be our year of history makers, who thrived in the face of the pandemic.

Lots of careful and considered preparation and planning has been undertaken to keep our community as safe as possible. The children will be making the most of our generous outside spaces and award winning architecture. We are offering a full curriculum to our students and a wide range of extra-curricular and sporting activities, which provide excellent character development beyond the classroom.

If you are considering St Joseph’s College for your family, there are still plenty of ways to find out more.  You can explore our campus with our Virtual Tours or attend one of our Open Days, which have been modified to keep our community safe.

We are mindful that this is a challenging time for everyone at the moment, and taking care of our community is a key part of what makes St Joseph’s very special.  All of our staff, especially the pastoral team, including our College nurse and counsellor, are available to offer advice that parents may find useful. Find out more here.

With warm regards,

We're making people,
not pancakes.

We believe that education is more than just a rigid recipe. It should be a personal journey, shaped around the individual needs of every child.

Students at St Joseph's College are not on a conveyor belt propelling them towards exams and then university in a predictable, unimaginative way. We would like them, in the words of the Hon. Gwendolen Fairfax, "to develop in many directions".

Sixth Form
The opportunity to achieve
is open to all.

You don't have to have spent your whole school life here to join our vibrant and challenging Sixth Form.

The Sixth Form is such a critical stage in educational development that it makes sense to study somewhere with the facilities, the culture and the focus to help you perform to your best – where you are known as an individual and not just as a potential examination grade.
