St Joseph’s College recognised in the Parliamentary Review

We are delighted to announce that St Joseph’s College has been selected to feature in the 2019/2020 Education edition of The Parliamentary Review.

The Review is an indispensable guide to industry best practice, demonstrating how sector leaders respond to challenges in the political and economic environment.

The Review’s article featuring St Joseph’s College focuses on the challenges faced by Headmaster, Andrew Colpus, when he joined the College in 2012, to raise pupil numbers, maintain a strong academic performance and effectively market the school’s strengths. Significant changes took place in a short space of time, together with a reduction in fees and a considerable financial investment in facilities.

Over seven years the College has become well known as a highly successful 3 to 18 coeducational school, with a pupil roll that has grown from 300 to 567.

Andrew Colpus said: “As a school we need to ensure that our young people are ready to enter an increasingly competitive world. At St Joseph’s we achieve this with a strong focus on our core values to encourage, inspire, challenge and support, and our aim is to equip our pupils with the essential attributes of communication, collaboration, commitment and confidence.”

The release of The Parliamentary Review was marked with a reception at the Mansion House, London on Wednesday 11 September for all the best practice representatives who participate in the publication.

The Review is distributed to over 500,000 leading business executives and policy makers in the UK. To read the full article please click on the link below.
