St Joseph’s is proud of its culture built on traditional values and the pursuit of excellence.

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.

Cross Curricular Events

In addition to the traditional curriculum a wide range of cross curricular and theme based activities take place each year, enhancing the usual selection of subjects and lessons and giving students the opportunity to focus on a particular project and work in different learning groups.

Independent Learning

The school places great emphasis on independent learning which is regularly set and marked. Students in Year 7 should expect approximately one hour of independent learning every evening, gradually increasing to at least fifteen hours per week in the Sixth Form. Independent learning is an opportunity for a student to develop independent study skills and self- reliance, both of which are invaluable when studying for GCSE and A Level.
