 St Joseph's Vision

St Joseph’s College Vision

In St Joseph’s we provide a pupil-centred, broad and balanced curriculum reflecting the needs of all pupils with the aim of maximising their life chances.  Our vision is of a school that enables each student to achieve their full potential within a learning environment that is safe, positive, respectful, inclusive and welcoming.  Our Catholic ethos directs all that we do and by adhering to it we create an environment of caring and encouragement.  Pupils have ambitious aspirations and are highly motivated in pursuit of these, displaying a positive work ethos in doing so.  Through provision of a broad range of curricular and extra-curricular activities and the promotion of a positive outlook to life, we develop the whole individual.  The professionalism of all staff is evident in their work and performance.  Their commitment to Continued Professional Development ensures modern techniques, methodologies and technologies are employed in both teaching and learning.  Our school is deeply rooted in our communities and reflects the diversity therein. Students have opportunities for active citizenship and are encouraged to participate fully in these.  They use the community as a classroom and the community members provide resources,connections and active support.  The triangular partnership between the school, the home and community allows us to create a school that pupils aspire to go to, perform well in and which the community is proud of.
