Welcome to St Joseph's College

The first term of a new academic year is always a joyful time at St Joseph’s. We return to school in the tail end of warm summer days and have so much to enjoy as autumn advances towards winter, culminating in the many excitements of Christmas. I believe we are all appreciating the simple pleasures of the school calendar – reassuringly familiar but constantly evolving – more than ever as the constraints of the pandemic recede. Our annual Rugby Festival returned bigger and better than ever, our students are singing and rehearsing together for concerts and shows, we are sitting down to meals as the St Jo’s family once again. Life is good.

Of course, we are vigilant about Covid and continue our programme of enhanced hygiene measures to help keep it at bay, but there is a wonderful feeling of normalcy throughout, 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 allow 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

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.
