The school is well known for its caring and supportive atmosphere. Our treatment of each other within this community is a reflection of the unique ethos of the College where each individual is valued and cared for by all.
St Joseph's provides a very high level of care for children, which includes paediatric first aid trained staff and a qualified College nurse on campus throughout the week. All our food is freshly prepared on site by the College’s award-winning catering team.
We expect our students to give and receive respect – respect for people, their beliefs, their differences, their talents and their backgrounds. We give support, help and guidance, through what can be a challenging period in a young person’s life. We give encouragement and praise, but we demand high standards of behaviour and commitment in return. Everyone works hard to ensure our school is a happy, successful and harmonious place to be.
Each student has a tutor providing day-to-day pastoral guidance and help. The tutor will support and listen, but will also demand high standards of behaviour, attendance, punctuality, appearance and work, and will monitor each student’s progress. Tutors can call upon support from Heads of School or the school’s Senior Leadership Team as required. Parents are also engaged. It is vital that school and home work closely together in order to get the very best outcome for each student.
