visiting & open days

At St Joseph’s, being welcoming, inclusive and community based in our pursuit of excellence extends to welcoming prospective parents at any time. We are not limited to set Open Days: please ring the Registrar to arrange a date and time that suits you.

St Joseph’s school also holds events during each term to enable prospective parents and children to visit the school and get a real feel for what we have to offer.   

Open days give you the chance to see the school in action, speak to pupils and staff and have an informal chat with the Head Teacher, Deputy or Junior Head.

Senior School Taster Day For Year 6 Pupils

This is an opportunity for boys and girls who are currently in Year 6 to spend the day in the Senior School at St Joseph's. Pupils will spend the day following the timetable of a typical Year 7 to get a real experience of St Joseph's Senior School. This Taster Day is open to all internal and external children in Year 6. There are limited places available and booking is essential. To book a place for your child or for further information please contact Annette. 

Taster Days 

We are happy to offer taster days to all prospective pupils. Taster days enable your child to see how the typical school day works at St Joseph’s and to meet the teaching staff and pupils within the school.  We feel that Taster days are an important introduction to the school and give your child the opportunity to find out whether they will enjoy this environment whilst giving our teachers the chance to get to know the child. We recommend that all children wishing to start at St Joseph’s have a least one taster day, ideally two or more.

To book a taster day for your child please contact Annette.


We also attend the following shows;

  • Royal Cornwall Show 8th, 9th, 10th June 2017
