Welcome to St Joseph's College

The staff and I are delighted to have re-connected with our current students for Lent Term 2021 and we are particularly gladdened to have welcomed the many new families who have joined our community this term.

We begin this new year, once again, as a virtual school for the majority of our students. Our teachers are delivering the full academic timetable via online platforms, both nationally and internationally. To support those families who need them, we have lent numerous electronic devices, allowing students to remain connected and engaged with their studies. Our focus is continued academic progress for every individual through outstanding, live and interactive online teaching.

Careful and considered preparation and planning have been undertaken to keep our community as safe as possible. We are offering supervision in College for vulnerable children and children of critical workers, and our Nursery remains open. We have international boarders in our boarding houses, who are joining the virtual learning timetable whilst being supported by our dedicated team. We have successfully rolled out our rapid asymptomatic testing programme for those staff and students who are in College, and we are fully prepared to scale this up as soon as a full reopening of the campus is possible.

If you are considering St Joseph’s College for your family, there are still plenty of ways to find out more. The Admissions team is on hand to guide you through the process and we continue with our planned application and scholarship assessment procedures, albeit using virtual platforms. To explore our campus with our virtual tours, please click here and do contact our admissions team with any questions and to find out more on admissions@stjos.co.uk

We are mindful that this is a challenging time for everyone, 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 College counsellor, are available to offer advice that parents may find useful. Find out more here.

With warm regards,

Excellent
is one word for it.

St Joseph's College Nursery & Reception excels in every area, enabling children to progress ahead of their age.

Dedicated. Effective. Secure. Happy. All describe the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision at St Joseph's, where children get an excellent start to their education and development.

Prep
Some ties loosened -
not entirely traditional.

Willingness to challenge convention is central to our approach to education.

The stunning visual impact of the purpose-built and award-winning Prep School buildings reveals a College that is not afraid of new thinking sitting alongside established wisdom pioneering educational resources and practices thrive in a nurturing family environment.

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.

Boarding
More time to enjoy,
to learn, to grow.

Boarding at St Joseph's encourages independence and provides the opportunity to really squeeze the most out of every minute of every day.

The facilities we offer to our boarding students enable them to enjoy their lives at school to the full resulting in both impressive exam results and outstanding performances in sports and the arts.
