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.

Coronavirus Update:

Owing to the need for social distancing Covid 19 has brought, St Joseph’s school is now spread across Devon and Cornwall, from Dartmoor to Duloe, Looe to Liskeard and Bude to Bodmin. Pupils are working from home on lessons set by or teaching staff, and we are gearing up for online learning and all the possibilities this brings.

Parents are encouraged to contact teachers regularly throughout this time, and Mr Scott and the St Jo’s team will be in regular communication with parents and pupils throughout this time. We are maintaining our weekly newsletter, and encourage contributions from parents and pupils showing us what the children of St Jo’s are up to on a daily and weekly basis.

Please do contact registrar@stjosephscornwall.co.uk if your question is about joining St Jo’s when things return to normal. Alternatively, Mr Scott can be contacted with an email to headteacher@stjosephscornwall.co.uk.

We will return to teaching as normal as soon as we possibly can. We miss every child who should be coming to school each morning, and look forward to being together again soon.

In this difficult time do look after one another, listen to and act on the advice given and we will then all do our bit for the good of everyone – particularly the most vulnerable.
