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.

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.'

We are very pleased to announce the amazing achievement of Omlola (Lola) Funsho, one of our current Year 12 students. Lola, achieved a 100% Distinction in her recent Popular Music Vocal Recital, Grade 6 Exam, an almost unprecedented level of marks.

Lola has lessons as part of the Music Inclusion Project, funded by Youth Music and The Swindon Music Hub. Tuition is provided by Swindon Music Co-operative who visit the College weekly. Lola was nominated for the programme by Mrs Cooke at St Joseph’s. Funding is limited and students need to be committed to the programme if accepted.

Lola has a natural, distinctive tone to her voice and this is developed and nurtured by her weekly tutoring sessions. Lola is also proving to be a creative actress and has taken part in many College productions including Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Coat and Hairspray.

Lola has continually shown her musical ability and in Year 10 won the Outstanding commitment to Music Award.

As well as being an exceptional singer, Lola is a dedicated student at St Joseph’s and a contributing member of the College community. She is currently Sixth Form Head Girl and plays an active part in the CAFOD student team, attending regular meetings and seminars. Lola currently studies A Level Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths.

Lola is a merit to the Sixth Form and St Joseph’s Catholic College and an inspiration to students in the lower years. We are extremely proud of her achievement.
