Sport for pleasure is a hallmark of life at St Jo’s. Alongside our performance sports (Rugby, Football, Netball and Cricket), there are opportunities for pupils of all abilities to participate in a diverse range of activities, including trampoline, badminton, hockey, golf, swimming, squash, table tennis, athletics and gymnastics.
A significant number of students represent Suffolk, Essex, the East of England and beyond – some of these will go on to achieve national recognition in their chosen sports. Our coaching staff includes former professional players.
Inter-school fixtures give students the chance to represent St Joseph’s, whilst international tours demonstrate sport’s unifying spirit. We host an annual National Schools Rugby Festival, Netball Festival and Cricket Week, attended and supported by past and present students, families and staff.
As well as fun and fitness, we believe sport should deliver collaboration, ambition and resilience for girls and boys of all ages and abilities.
