Our Estyn Inspection took place during January 2013 and the report that was published in March, contained the following judgements:

The school's current performance   Excellent
The school's prospect for improvement   Excellent

Of the 15 judgements that are made in an inspection, St. Joseph’s RC High School achieved 15 ‘Excellent’ gradings out of 15, becoming only the second secondary school in Wales to do so. This means that all aspects of the school’s work are judged to have

“Many strengths including significant examples of sector-leading practice.”

Inspectors judged the excellent features of the school to include the very high standards and progress achieved by pupils, its excellent attendance, the exemplary behaviour of pupils, the quality of teaching and the effective way in which the school cares for, supports and guides pupils.
