A great evening yesterday at the Year 13 Prom! Thanks to all those who organised the event and for the teachers and students who came to celebrate the last two years at St Joseph’s! A lovely occasion!


A reminder to Year 11 students (from St Joseph’s and other schools) who have applied to join the Sixth Form in September 2022! There are still a few places available on the Transition Morning. Places can be booked using the EventBrite link below:

It was an honour to represent the school at the Installation Mass for Archbishop Mark O’Toole with Harri and Amanda who read as well and Thea who welcomed the new Archbishop on behalf of the young people of the diocese. It was a lovely occasion!


Year 12 students spent the day in Birmingham at the @ucas_online Exhibition visiting 100s of different uni stands to find out about the thousands of courses available! Then on to @unibirmingham for a tour with @Seren_Network to see a Russell Group university! A great day!


It was great for Miss Larkman to visit @StTheresePT this morning to work with Year 6. The pupils worked to plan and design the Year 7 Numeracy curriculum that the pupils will be studying when they join us in September. A great morning with very ambitious and capable pupils!
