Visiting Us and Open Days

St Joseph’s School 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.

Prospective parents can also visit the school at any point throughout the year by prior appointment with the Registrar. Please contact Rebecca Walker on either 01566 772580 or

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 who are considering joining the Year 7 in September 2019. There are limited places available and booking is essential. To book a place for your child or for further information please contact the Registrar. 

Joining Reception Class

For those looking to join our Reception Class at age 4, we offer Transition Tuesday's throughout the Summer Term. This enable children to get to know the enviorment prior to joining in the September. Children are welcome to attend every Tuesday through the Summer Term from 8.30am - 1pm. 

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.


We also attend the following shows;

Royal Cornwall Show and Launceston Show
