In their own words…
When a family joins the College community a door is opened to a new and wide network of friends, families and contacts. Members of the St Joseph’s community are present at the many events throughout the academic year, and many stay in touch through forums and social activities.
After leaving St Joseph’s in 2019, I realised fully how fortunate I was to study there for seven very special years. Memorable trips, various sports including playing in three rugby festivals, and on-stage highlights helped shape me. Great teaching led to top grades and an Economics degree in Leeds and Canada
The abundant sense of community at St Joseph’s College is what truly underpins our ethos of aspiration, confidence and respect. It is here where I have been supported, whether that be in my desire to play a high level of sport, to achieve the best grades possible, or even to take on new challenges such as public speaking! In my last year at St Jo’s, it has been my greatest pleasure to take on the role of Head Girl after many years of looking up to the previous Head Boys and Girls.
We have three daughters at St Joseph’s one in the Prep School and two in the senior school. I love the values the school instilled to be respectful to all as well as providing fantastic opportunities in all areas. My husband is an Old Birkfeldian and he has strong friendships to this day forged at the College. It is a special community.
St Jo’s is special to me because it has truly changed my life. It allowed me to be myself while at the same time excelling academically and developing emotionally. For the incredible job the staff have done, I will always be grateful and forever in their debt for all they have given me.
St Jo’s is a huge part of my family. Having been a pupil, and now teaching and sending my two sons to the College, I have had the privilege of experiencing the School as a child, parent and teacher. It is a strong, welcoming community that I am very proud to be a part of.
