Curriculum

A challenging, aspirational and inspirational environment

Founded in Christian principles, the culture at St Joseph’s creates compassionate, confident, resilient and reflective learners with a strong sense of social justice. Students leave the college well-prepared for adulthood and with a strong sense of the role they must play to change the world for the better.

We seek to provide the highest quality teaching and expect the highest standards of work and behaviour. All students agree aspirational targets which will challenge them to unlock their potential. Meticulous and regular monitoring of progress encourages and assists students in meeting these challenges and keeps parents engaged in the all-important combination of home and school support.

St Joseph’s has a broad and balanced curriculum which is diverse and motivational and continually evolving to meet the needs of a dynamic society.
