Our School

Catholic Ethos

St Joseph’s Catholic High School is strongly committed to building and strengthening the Catholic ethos of the school. Underlying our teaching and our relationships are the Gospel Values and this is seen through our Mission Statement of ‘Unlocking Belief in All’. We aim for students to do this through living out our Pupil Profile of: Learned and Wise, Loving and Compassionate, Truthful and eloquent, intentional and prophetic, attentive and discerning, faith-filled and hopeful, curious and active, grateful and generous. Our aim, within this context, is that all members of our community show Christ through the presence of each other. St Joseph’s, as our patron, inspires us to support one another as family and we do this by prayer and charitable service. We place a great emphasis on home, school and parish links.

The school strives to build on the foundations of faith started from the home and seeks to provide an environment where beliefs and values of the Catholic faith are taught, explained, developed and nurtured.  Our School is a place where each student believes in their own potential, in an environment where they can succeed and achieve thus ‘Unlocking their Belief’.

Our Virtues permeate every aspect of St Joseph’s. Please see the information below that illustrates examples of how our Catholic faith is lived out through these values:
