What makes an excellent school into a consistently outstanding one is an ability to examine itself honestly, and to understand what makes it unique, where it wants to be and how it is going to get there.
This vision and direction must all be underpinned by a strong strategic business and development plan. Read our College Strategic Development Plan to discover how we are shaping our future and planning our priorities.
Over the past seven years, the College has invested in excess of £10 million in its infrastructure, with the introduction of 21st century buildings and upgraded facilities, including the freehold purchase of the campus site. Improvements include a £4m Prep School, a £2m floodlit Astroturf, changing room and sports offices complex, the refurbishment of some of our boarding facilities, a new technology centre, the creation of a state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre (opened in September 2016) and a dual aspect multi-function pavilion, which opened in summer 2019. The most recent major project has been the repair and restoration of our stunning mid 20th century Chapel. You can see some of our recent projects in the gallery below.
Updating and renewal of facilities is a continuous process at St Joseph's. Desired capital development projects for the years ahead include the creation of new boarding houses.
