Principals Message

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.

The Phil Burchall Memorial Cup was jointly awarded to Lee-Ann Popowicz and Naomi South in recognition for their outstanding academic performance at AS; achieving four A grades each. The evening was rounded off with presentations from Joanna Vickers (Fairtrade), Lawrence Rees (India 2014), Jennifer Jurga (The Pre-teaching Award) and a film made by Duke of Edinburgh Gold students. There were performances by Jordan Isgin (Piano) and Omolola Funsho (Vocal).

Congratulations to all!


St. Joseph’s Catholic College employs a range of apprentices from Swindon College to work alongside our more experienced members of staff. We were very proud of two current apprentices who are working in the Curriculum Support Department as Teaching Assistants as they both won prestigious awards last week at a special ceremony at Swindon College. 

Mitchell Stephens won ‘Teaching Assistant Apprentice of the Year’ for his outstanding start to his career in education and dedication to his college studies. Danny Baker won ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Community’ award for his participation in the recent school musical as well as the organisation of his Street Dance club for students.

Our congratulations to Mitchell and Danny on their achievements and we are thrilled that they are both staying at St. Joseph’s as well as continuing their studies to a higher level.
