St. Joseph's Catholic College

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.

Multi-academy Trust

Dear Parents and Carers

Governors of St Joseph’s and the Governors of Holy Cross Primary School have been exploring the option of federating with a view to becoming a multi-academy trust. This means that the two schools who have a common Catholic ethos will effectively operate as one, with an Executive Headteacher and a strategic board of Governors overseeing the work of both schools. Many schools in Swindon, and indeed throughout the country, have successfully adopted this model of school organisation with positive advantages for pupils and staff.

Year 6 Information Evening

On Tuesday 27 June, many Year 6 students and their parents visited St. Joseph’s to attend a briefing on the impending Induction Day for new students. Several talks were held where parents learned about what the arrangements for the Year 6 induction programme on Thursday 6th July. The presentation used in these sessions is available to view below.

Parents also used this time to go to the uniform ‘pop-up’ shop, where items of branded uniform could be tried on and purchased.

Those parents who did not attend this opportunity to buy uniform will be able to come to the College Sports Hall between 3.00 and 6.00pm on the 13th July. This will be the last ‘pop-up’ uniform shop event before September. All other uniform purchases will have to be made online.
