Where ambition meets opportunity

This is an exciting time to join St Jo’s because we have a strong and clear vision of what we want our school to be. And we want to attract students who can match our ambitions on the pitch, in the classroom and on the stage.

We believe that everyone can become an academic, athlete, artist, or actor. They just need the ambition, confidence and opportunity to be one. And that is where we come in…

We aim to spark curiosity and promote a lifelong love of learning. Our small class sizes, coupled with our stretch and challenge programme creates an inspiring environment in which our students thrive. We provide a rich varied curriculum, we’re constantly reviewing the courses we offer to ensure they match the ambitions of our students. We’re always asking how we can extend learning, how can we take it beyond the walls of the classroom? We don’t expect our students to fit our curriculum, we want our curriculum to inspire our students. Nothing makes us happier than seeing brilliant children question and debate the topics of the day.

Do you think you have what it takes to become an academic high-flyer? There is still time to join us as an academic scholar in September 2024. We have entrance assessments taking place on Saturday 23 March and there are some academic scholarships available. If you have what it takes to match our ambition in the classroom, then please book a visit to find out more.

Our ambition is to be the premier independent school for sport and physical education in England, nurturing student athletes to pathways in elite and professional sport. We know that playing sport helps to support children’s cognitive development and we see daily how active children learn better. We are rightly proud of our sporting heritage with particular success in rugby and in female football, (the U18 girls football team are national champions!) . We have excellent facilities and professional coaching staff who have played performance sport. But we are not prepared to rest there, we want to promote excellence and gender equality in school sport, helping our students to develop skills in a myriad of ways.

Are you ambitious for your sporting future? There are still sporting scholarships available for students who wish to join St Jo’s in September 2024. We will be assessing for sport scholarships in March, and if you can match our ambition we want to hear from you. Book a visit to find out more.

Our ambition is to provide an inspirational creative environment where students are able to express themselves. We don’t box our students in, we want them to follow their passions and express their creativity in the most individual way possible. Our broad curriculum allows students to focus on the subjects in which they excel. Our creative partnerships allow children to aspire to the very highest creative standards. Our partnership with Arts International brings West End performers to the College for specialist workshops. Our Gold Artsmark Award is accreditation from the Arts Council that reflects our commitment to the highest artistic standards. Our students have access to performance opportunities in a professional theatre, they can rehearse on a beautiful Steinway grand piano or create in our light and spacious art rooms or using our suite of Macs. But our ambitions don’t end there.

If you are inspired by the arts and are committed to focus, hard work and following your vision, then we want to hear from you. There are still some scholarships available in the creative and performing arts for September 2024. We will be assessing on Thursday 21 March, and if you want to find out more, then please book a visit.

The extra-curricular provision here at the College is an integral component of our student’s experience. We provide incredible opportunities for students to explore new places, cultures and ideas and this fosters their personal and social development. Whether it is engineering soap box cars, exploring graffiti art in Brooklyn, a glacier walk in Iceland, language classes in Madrid or a student exchange programme in Buenos Aires there is no shortage of inspiration to cultivate and nurture ambition. Our students take an active role in our community, whether that as a Member of Youth Parliament or volunteering at a local care home. Our students aspire to make a real difference to society and we are ambitious to provide the stimulus for them to do just that.

There is still time to join our vibrant community – we have places available for September 2024. We have entrance assessments taking place on Saturday 23 March and if you have what it takes to match our ambition beyond the classroom, then please book a visit to find out more.
