Warrant Officer Dean Cooke paid a visit to St Joseph’s in July to talk to Year 9 students in their assembly. Reflecting on the value of responsibility Warrant Officer Cooke recalled his experiences as a naval officer and challenged our Year 9 students to think about their growing responsibilities.



On Friday 27th June, our Year 11 students underwent a transformation. No longer were they uniformed scholars going about their daily studies, but they metamorphosed into sophisticated, elegant, glamorous young adults as they celebrated the end of their GCSEs at our Annual Year 11 Prom. With an early start of 6pm., the students arrived in a variety of different carriages including a mobility scooter, a vintage bus, the traditional limo and a VW camper van. They enjoyed a two course meal but the best part of the evening was the opportunity to dance, admire their dresses and enjoy each other’s company. Atmospheric and electrifying, the dance floor was packed all night with students grooving to the beats. A memorable evening for everyone!


As part of our approach to setting high standards we have made changes to the uniform which has been explained in previous newsletters. During the period of transition to the new uniform we want to ensure that we retain high standards. The majority of students understand this and abide by the rules. We still unfortunately have a small minority who wear trainers, have shirts out or wear a skirt which is too short, which is not fair on those who wear the correct uniform every day. As from September we will be introducing a tougher stance on uniform to ensure equality for all.

Students arriving back in September who are not in the correct uniform will be deemed as being unready for lessons and may be taught separately from their peers.

This gives students and their parents the whole of the summer holidays to make sure the uniform is correct. Any parents/ carers who are concerned about their ability to afford an item of clothing should contact the relevant student manager as soon as possible to allow the College the opportunity to provide assistance.
