Our School

Catholic Life & Mission

The Catholic Life and Mission of the Church is at the very heart of everything we do at St Joseph’s. It is given the highest priority where the development of an authentic Catholic ethos is actively sought by all. Students are empowered to have a thorough understanding of the Church’s liturgical year, its seasons, rites and symbols.  Within the school community, prayer has a profound and visible effect on the development of all students and staff irrespective of ability or faith background.

As a school, we promote a love of faith; engaging and inspiring our students to take responsibility for promoting the Catholic ethos of our community whilst seeking to lead and develop this further. Developing a greater understanding of vocation is fundamental in giving our students a meaningful reason to live out their faith. Teachers ensure that students are provided with opportunities to develop their thinking and respond to questions of faith. Our school celebrates, develops and enhances the Catholic Life of our students and ensures our Catholic ethos underpins all that we do and strive to achieve.
