It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website for the sixth form here at St Joseph’s RC High School. At St Joseph’s, we aim to provide a caring and supportive atmosphere in which our students can develop as mature, thoughtful, independent young adults. We encourage them to have a deep understanding of their faith and an awareness of their role within the Christian Community. Through the learning pathways we provide you will have access to high quality teaching in a broad range of subjects designed to provide the qualifications needed to fulfil your career ambitions either in employment, further or higher education. Our students work hard and their progress is closely tracked and supported by teachers, form tutors, the Assistant Head Teacher, the Assistant Heads of Years 12 (Mr S Hughes) and Year 13 (Mrs E Edwards) and myself.
Students are challenged to set targets for their own performance and are encouraged to plan for their future after the Sixth Form. We place great emphasis on students’ personal development and they are strongly encouraged to participate in a wide range of enrichment activities including Young Enterprise, Engineering Education Scheme, Reading and Number Buddies, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Dragon Sports, charity fund raising. At St. Joseph’s we believe that it is vital to work in partnership, not only with our students but also with parents and guardians as each of us has a vital part to play in the fostering of the intellectual, social, creative, physical, moral and spiritual development of our students.
I hope you find the information you require, but if you would like to discuss anything further then please contact me or the deputy head of Sixth Form, Mrs J Moriarty, at the school.
Mr Joe Ryan Head of Sixth Form
