Our students are encouraged to recognise themselves within the context of a wider community, region, nation and planet. For them and for St Joseph’s College as a whole, this context offers opportunities and responsibilities.
The school has strong and developing links with a number of organisations, with important partnerships in the areas of Sport and the Arts, including Ipswich Town FC, Ealing Trailfinders and Northampton Saints Rugby Clubs, Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme, Arts International, Arts Council England and NSX Adventure. Students receive access to high-level specialist support and pathways through these partnerships.
In turn, the school uses its in-house expertise, facilities and links to the benefit of local maintained schools and groups. St Joseph’s also works hard to support a large number of charities, including East Anglian Air Ambulance, local children’s and adult hospices, cancer charities, Children in Need, Comic Relief and the Ukraine Appeal. Support for the wider world begins at Prep School, with beach cleans, bird counts and Christmas appeals in aid of children in need both locally and internationally. Opportunities continue right through the College, with our Sixth Formers spearheading the annual People in Need appeal, now in its fourth decade.
