We are extremely proud of our school and see our pupils flourish in a trusting and encouraging environment where they feel heard and valued. Our smaller size creates a breadth of opportunity and responsibility for your child that you can rarely find elsewhere. At St Joseph’s we don’t just talk about values, we really live them.

Our school…

Encourages curiosity, creativity and compassion

Our school is both ambitious and down-to-earth; we believe nurturing curiosity, creativity and compassion is as important as exam results. St Joseph’s is a creative school, where pupils are encouraged to be individuals and to develop a curiosity for learning.

Provides tailored education

We know all our pupils as individuals and tailor their education around them, not the other way around. We stretch our pupils, find their strengths, support their needs and celebrate their dreams; bringing the best out of everybody. At St Joseph’s, no child ‘gets lost’ in the middle; all abilities are supported and nurtured equally.

Creates an atmosphere of warmth and trust

St Joseph’s is a school that really cares. We are known for our high quality pastoral care and holistic approach. Our close community of teachers, pupils and parents brings a strong sense of acceptance and understanding to the way people treat each other. Our pupils are never made to fit a ‘template’, they are instead given the freedom to shine, create and achieve without unhealthy pressure.

Lives its values

Our strong moral and spiritual ethos naturally guides everything we do; a set of values that are lived by the children and clearly demonstrated in the way they behave and take care of each other. St Joseph’s provides a warm and inclusive community where pupils of any faith or no faith are welcomed.

Commits to affordable independent education

At St Joseph’s we invest prudently to make sure we will always be able to provide affordable and inclusive education to pupils from all backgrounds. We are genuinely committed to providing the very best for our pupils without creating an ‘elitist’ environment.

Embraces the future

St Joseph’s is a forward-thinking and evolving school, changing its approach to meet the demands and pressures of a fast-moving world. Adapting and flourishing in the face of change is arguably the key skill young people need today, and here we lead by example. We are always seeking to learn, transform and seek new challenges whilst we encourage our pupils to do the same.
