St. Joseph's Catholic College

A Welcome from the Principal

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.

Mass for Education

On Tuesday 27th June, Mrs Vincent, Mrs Almeida, Mr Hughes and students from the college went to represent the school at the Mass for Catholic Education at Clifton Cathedral. Many other Catholic schools were present at the mass that was celebrated by Bishop Declan. The mass was about the importance of education in our lives. It gave us time to reflect how lucky we are to have the opportunity to learn, unlike other children in the world. Overall, it was a great experience and we had a brilliant time.




Multi-academy Trust

Dear Parents and Carers

Governors of St Joseph’s and the Governors of Holy Cross Primary School have been exploring the option of federating with a view to becoming a multi-academy trust. This means that the two schools who have a common Catholic ethos will effectively operate as one, with an Executive Headteacher and a strategic board of Governors overseeing the work of both schools. Many schools in Swindon, and indeed throughout the country, have successfully adopted this model of school organisation with positive advantages for pupils and staff.
