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.

Last week, Monday the 13th to Friday the 17th, the College was packed to the brim with all kinds of fun learning sessions taking place as part of our Activities Week.

We had trips taking place throughout the week to Thorpe Park, Alton Towers, Old Town and Green Bridge Cinema as part of Art, ICT, Business and Geography Lessons, as well as many activities taking place within the College such as Whack It P.E. Basketball Tournaments, Modern Foreign Languages Board Games, Tile Art, Drama and Music Performances and Meditation Sessions to name a few. It was lovely to see all of our students from Years 7 straight up to Sixth Form excited to take part and working together to achieve some wonderfully creative outcomes.

A major part of Activities Week was Sports Day, held on Wednesday the 15th , a HUGE well done and pat on the back is in order for all of our students who took part in any of the competitions going on. Evesham, Congratulations especially are in order for you! You were of course our House Winner this time. Not to worry Buckfast, Glastonbury and Walsingham you’ll get them next year! It was absolutely fabulous to see all of our students working together and cheering their teams on, Thank you all for your fantastic behaviour throughout the day and the never-ending enthusiasm.

We would also like to take the chance and thank everyone who got involved in Activities Week. You all helped make it a truly memorable experience.

As part of Activity Week Year 7 had a retreat day which culminated in a pilgrimage walk to Holy Rood Church where Canon John welcomed the students. They participated in a mass celebrating their first year together in St Joseph’s Catholic College.


'Students from St Joseph’s Catholic College answered a call from the Pope to do their bit to tackle climate change this week, joining a lobby of MPs in Parliament.

On Thursday, June 18, Pope Francis released an Encyclical – a letter to people worldwide – calling on everyone to take better care of the environment and the planet.

But St Joe’s pupils 13-year-old Finn, and 14-year-olds Binet, Ron and Joseph began answering the call early when they travelled to Westminster...'

Mrs Brennan and Miss Foley were very proud to accompany a group of St Joseph’s athletes at the Wiltshire Schools athletics trials on Saturday 13th June.

For most of the athletes it was their first time representing Swindon and despite the nerves and unfamiliar surroundings they acquitted themselves tremendously well. Notable performances came from Teresa Iannetelli with a 2nd place finish in the Intermediate girls 200m. This was her fourth race of the day as she had also contested the heat and final of the 100m. Andrew Simango improved with every throw in the junior boys discus eventually finishing in 3rd place. Also in the field there were 6th place finishes for both Rafael Torregrosa-Jones in the junior boys triple and Keisha Ishani in the junior girls shot putt. Back on the track Camille Valere ran a great race in the minor girls 200m narrowly missing out on a place in the final.

We would like to say big thank you to all our students for being a credit to the college and to the parents who came to drop off, collect and support on the day.

Mrs Brennan and Miss Foley


Congratulations to our Year 11 Football team on winning the Under 16s Wiltshire County Cup. The team coach Mr Barkahm had this to say.

'The road was a long one with trips to Salisbury and Corsham and the final taking place in Chippenham at Stanley Park. Having taken the boys since they started, it has been a real pleasure to see them progress as players and as students – they should be very proud and pleased with themselves, I definitely am.'
