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.

Visit from Member of Parliament, Robert Buckland

St Joseph’s College was delighted to receive a visit from our local Member of Parliament, Robert Buckland, on Friday 20 January.

Mr Buckland met three groups of students and was happy to take any questions they had for him. He discussed international politics and local social issues with a group of Year 12 and 13 A Level History and Sociology students. A Year 9 History class asked him about the state of British democracy and the NHS. Finally, he met the Year 8 Student Voice Representative, who asked him about his personal experiences of being a Member of Parliament and about how to get involved in politics. Mr Buckland was open and informative with his answers and the students appreciated the time he took to meet them.



Charity Sleepout

We had the pleasure of hading a cheque for over £900 to Threshold representative Paul Kyson. The money was raised by Sixth Form students being sponsored for a 'Sleepout' last week. Teachers, Fiona Payne and Tina Foley, said they were very proud of the students and their commitment to Threshold and the wonderful work done by the charity.

One notable student contribution was by Steffanie Vitale-Richardson, who alone raised £280. There are more donations to come in for the New Year, but students felt it was important that Threshold had funds for the Christmas period.
