Earlier this week we held the “St Joseph’s Act of Remembrance” - an important date in our school calendar. Watch our Memorial Assembly to see us remember those associated with the school that we know have died.

Early in November all Year 7 pupils took part in a year group retreat. The key questions were ‘What kind of person am I called to become, and how can I become the best version of myself?’ Thanks to their Form Tutors and the RE Department for organising such a great day!


This week saw us commemorate Remembrance Day and prepare for the Memorial Assembly later this month. Pupils & staff have the opportunity to write memorial cards for those who they wish to remember and place them, as Pope Francis has said, under the statue of a Sleeping St Joseph.

Congratulations to all the pupils who won a prize in the first round of this year's Big 50 Quiz. In total there were 12 winners and a total of nearly £200 in vouchers were awarded.
Well done everyone! 🥳
