We are taking what has been described as the “King Maker” of school festivals by the National press to a worldwide audience to broaden access and opportunity to more age groups and across multiple sports.
Introducing a new stage each year, held at a world-class venue, the St Joseph’s College Global Schools Sports Festival will expand towards a seven-stage event that offers a comprehensive experience for all and is shared across the world via our broadcasting partners NextGenXV.

With 37 years’ experience in delivering a world-class rugby festival, St Joseph’s College invites you to join us in Barcelona for Stage Two, where we will expand to both rugby and football for Under 11 to Under 18-year-old students.
The five-day festival is outlined HERE and will include the same successful format of games and matches enjoyed at the traditional St Joseph’s College UK festival: two days of competition, complemented by opportunities for team activities, sightseeing and travel on the other days.
If you are a school and would like to take part, you may register your interest HERE. We will follow up with you directly in the next week, to arrange a video meeting to talk through the proposition in more detail and answer any questions you may have.
