Willingness to challenge convention is central to our approach to education.
The stunning visual impact of the purpose-built and award-winning Prep School buildings reveals a College that is not afraid of new thinking sitting alongside established wisdom – pioneering educational resources and practices thrive in a nurturing family environment.
"Prep school pupils demonstrate very good skills, knowledge and understanding across all areas of leaning."(ISI Inspection Report, March 2019)
Our commitment to giving children the best possible start leads us to seek out and champion the best ideas and approaches to early years education. Children are provided with a multitude of academic, artistic and sporting opportunities; these are enriched by a stunning array of educational trips, extra-curricular clubs and activities.
Parental support and partnerships are vital to our success. There is a genuine sense of commitment to the needs of the children from across our school community, underpinning a distinctive culture of mutual support and encouragement to help every child to succeed at more than just SATs tests.
However, SATs test results at Key Stage 2 (Year 6) continue to be excellent, with St Joseph’s College performing significantly above the national averages in Maths and Reading.
