Welcome to St Joseph's College

St Joseph’s College feels different. We are very proud of the special ethos at St Joseph’s, an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18, which combines strong Christian values with a unique approach to supporting and nurturing children within a family environment.

We challenge all of our students to ‘be their best’ in every aspect of College life and set high standards for everyone in our community. Parents, pupils and staff work together to ensure that we produce confident pupils without arrogance, team players who will stand up for what is right and compassionate, caring members of society.

You are warmly invited to visit us at our beautiful 60 acre campus in Ipswich to discover for yourself what makes St Joseph’s feel so different.

Excellent

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
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.
