St. Joseph's Catholic College
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.
On Tuesday 27 June, many Year 6 students and their parents visited St. Joseph’s to attend a briefing on the impending Induction Day for new students. Several talks were held where parents learned about what the arrangements for the Year 6 induction programme on Thursday 6th July. The presentation used in these sessions is available to view below.
Parents also used this time to go to the uniform ‘pop-up’ shop, where items of branded uniform could be tried on and purchased.
Those parents who did not attend this opportunity to buy uniform will be able to come to the College Sports Hall between 3.00 and 6.00pm on the 13th July. This will be the last ‘pop-up’ uniform shop event before September. All other uniform purchases will have to be made online.

Unfortunately, there have been a few incidents recently where students have left their bikes not securely locked and we have had a couple of thefts.
As the College handbook states, the College is not covered by insurance in case of damage, loss or theft to any item that does not form part of College property. This includes bicycles, scooters, mopeds or other vehicles. If an item is taken/damaged whilst at the College, we suggest that you contact the police to report it and you may be able to claim on your house insurance.
To help mitigate the situation, we would be grateful if you could explain to your child that it is their responsibility to ensure their bicycle is locked securely each day. We will also reiterate this in the next student briefing.
Thanking you in advance for your co-operation.
