We're a highly successful, non-denominational, non-selective private day school in the South West of England; we combine a broad, challenging and high-quality education with excellent pastoral care and extra-curricular opportunity. As a result, we take great pride in our young people and what we help them to achieve, and they develop into confident, well-mannered and responsible individuals who respect others, the school and their environment.

We welcome boys and girls from age 4 to 16, going from reception class through the junior school and into the senior school.

We measure the success of what we do not just in academic achievement - although results in the junior school and GCSE results are well above national averages - but in the atmosphere we foster, the care we take of each child and the opportunities we extend to all. Our aim is to educate the pupil in the broadest sense, offering a firm foundation for life, a challenging but safe environment and a strong community spirit.

We have been very busy with registrations, with certain year groups nearing or at capacity. If you are considering an independent education for your child please contact us to arrange a visit.

  • Fabulous to see Year 8 pupil Daniella Stevens showing such success at the British Eventing International Horse trials at the weekend. It was her first dressage test on grass and first cross country round on the pony that she has only had for 6 months! While the filming may have been by her very proud parents, it is great to see the editing skills learnt at St Joseph’s put to such good use. We look forward to seeing further eventing and cinematic success in the future. Well done Daniella 👏
