Welcome to St Joseph's College

It is always a pleasure to see our students smiling as they return to the Prep and Senior School after the Christmas break. The delights of the holidays must never be underestimated, but we know we are doing our job properly when our students are ready to return to the more structured environment of the school day. This term we are particularly pleased to have welcomed a number of new students of various ages.

Typically, the Lent Term is characterised by steady application as our Senior students and Sixth Formers put in the necessary ‘hard yards’ as they approach public examinations. We support their application every step of the way and are proud of the successes achieved. This is a purposeful term throughout the College but it is also peppered with extra-curricular highlights, including the College Musical and residential Arts trips to London and New York, as well as a full calendar of sports challenges. Our Prep children are embarking on trips and visits once again, too, and beginning rehearsals for their Summer Production.

Of course, we remain vigilant about Covid and continue our programme of enhanced hygiene measures to help keep any sign of the virus at bay. A wonderful feeling of normalcy prevails across the campus, with students studying hard, socialising happily, playing sport and games energetically, and generally making the most of all St Joseph’s College has to offer.

If you are considering St Joseph’s Nursery, Prep School, Senior School or Sixth Form for your family we would encourage you to pay us a visit. This website will give you an idea of what makes St Jo’s so special, but coming onto the campus will really enable you to experience it for yourself. The Admissions team is on hand to guide you through the process, including registering for one of our family tours or Open Days. To request a visit or to find out more please contact admissions@stjos.co.uk.

With warm regards

Mrs Danielle Clarke

Principal

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.

Senior
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.
