St. Joseph’s is an 11-18 Catholic comprehensive school situated in the heart of St. Joseph’s Parish, Port Talbot. From Year 7 to Year 13 and beyond, we offer a pathway through Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, preparing our students for the rest of their lives. Our aim is always for excellence, for an education that inspires the development of the whole person, emotionally, spiritually and academically.
Whether you are a student, a parent or a visitor, we hope you find this website a useful resource to find out more about our school. There is more information and easy to follow links below, or use the menu at the top to find your way around.
Homework is an important part of a child's education. It teaches them to work independently, and to take ownership of their work and progress. We want homework to be an engaging and valuable experience for students and parents. Click here for our homework schedule. An up-to-date list of homework tasks is available on the ClassCharts app.
ParentPay is the easy way to manage your child's school dinner money. It's also an easy way for us to get in touch with you with up-to-date news. Make sure your email address on your ParentPay account is up-to-date so that you don't miss out.

ClassCharts is an app that allows you to check on you child's achievements in school. Every achievement and sanction point issued is available for you to see. You will also be able to see all of the homework issued to your child, with helpful advice, due dates and an estimated length of time each piece should take. The app is available on Apple or Android devices, or on their webpage.
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! 🥳
