Values and vision
St Joseph’s Catholic High School aims to be a learning environment that encourages the achievement of excellence, going by the motto “only the best is good enough”. It serves the academic needs of students while promoting the teachings and values of Jesus. It is a place where children are appreciated and understand how well appreciated they are, resulting in a supportive and nurturing learning environment.
“The headteacher and other senior leaders have transformed the culture of the school. They show clear and firm leadership and have supported staff and pupils to bring about improvements in all aspects of their work. The gaps in achievement between disadvantaged pupils, disabled pupils and those with special educational needs and others are closing quickly. Learners make good progress in the sixth form as a result of good teaching and strong leadership.”
