Principals Message

Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic College. When speaking to prospective parents I usually start with the question what do we want for our children? Our answer in St Joseph’s is that we want them to be happy and we want them to achieve to their full potential. Our aim is to provide a caring and supportive environment in which each individual can progress academically, spiritually and culturally.

Niamh Smith and Connor McGilligan (Y11) took part in the Catenian Public Speaking Competition on 12th October, in which they had to talk for 4 minutes on a choice of topics, and were given a score for their performance. Niamh chose to speak on "Is there privacy online?", and referred to the recent celebrity photo scandal as well as wikileaks, where Connor presented on "Does Prison Work?", and spoke eloquently from memory on deterrence, rehabilitation and punishment. We were delighted that they came second and third respectively from a field of 8, and Niamh has qualified for the national competition next year. Well done both!


On 15th October St Joseph's hosted the first 2014-15 Interschool Challenge Day, in which 12 Year 9s from 6 different schools experienced a workshop from each school, including Drama, Maths and Business Studies. It was a great day with an excellenta atmosphere of teamwork and full participation, with our two teams being praised from teachers from all schools. Both teams finished in mid-table, though one of them would have come close to winning had they had more experience of French rather than Spanish! The next inter-school day will be for Year 8s, with Year 7s following in the Summer.

On the 16th October a selection of year 8 and 9 girls represented the college in the Swindon U14’s Netball Tournament. Considering none of the girls had played in a team together before they used fantastic team work and communication to win three out of their six games beating: Lydiard Park, Kingsdown and Commonweal. A huge congratulations to all the girls: Ilena McCann, Grace Fitzgerald, Kiesha Ishani, Georgina Muroki, Morenike Funsho, Lauren Larcombe, Megan Neely, Morgan Barberi, Megan Barberi, Glory Iwouha.


A mass of remembrance will be held on Tuesday 25 November at the College at 4.00pm. It will be for the local community to remember all those who have had some involvement with our Deanery Catholic Schools and have since passed on. All members of the local community are very welcome.
