Register for a place at St Joseph’s
It is always a pleasure to receive an application from a family for their child to join St Jo’s and, as such, we endeavour to make the application process as straightforward as possible.
Our admissions process
Follow these simple steps to join our community.
From the start of the enquiry process, all the way through to offer acceptance, the St Joseph’s College Admissions Team will be supporting you every step of the way.
STEP 1 OF 5
Prospective families are invited to explore St Jo’s either via a Visit on one of our Open Days, a Snapshot Morning or an Individual Tour.
STEP 2 OF 5
Complete the Registration Form, and return along with the Registration Fee and copies of your child’s last two school reports.
STEP 3 OF 5
At this stage, your child will be asked to sit an Entrance Assessment and be invited to an interview. Prospective families are welcome, if relevant, to submit applications for Scholarships and/or Bursaries.
STEP 4 OF 5
If all of the criteria are met, an offer of a place at the College will be made.
STEP 5 OF 5
To accept an offer, all relevant forms and corresponding fees will need to be submitted.
Children are able to start at our nursery on, or directly after their 2nd birthday. Once registered for a place, your child will be invited to attend for two taster sessions so you and we can be sure they are happy and settled before accepting their place.
Following an application and for those applying to Reception – Year 2, a Taster Day will be arranged.
For those children applying for Years 3 – 6, they will be asked to complete online entrance assessments in English and Mathematics. A reference from your child’s current school will be sought and a Taster Day can be arranged so your son or daughter can experience the Prep School and realise how quickly they feel at home.
The College’s Admissions date for 2024 entry may be here (link to section below). However, it is possible to apply for a place outside of these dates, subject to space.
All applicants are asked to sit a Cognitive Ability Test (CAT) for which no practice or preparation is required. Students will have an interview with the College’s Principal and a reference will be sought from their current school.
