Thank you for considering an application to St Joseph's School. The information on this section of the website explains the procedures for joining us but please contact us at any time if you have any questions or if you would like to arrange a visit to the school.

At St Joseph's we strongly believe that St Joseph's belongs to all of us. If we all -teachers and other staff, pupils, parents - feel we have a stake in the school's success, then we nurture a strong sense of community, of belonging, and of joint endeavour.

We make sure that our class sizes start and stay small, which allows our expert and dedicated staff to devote the attention they need to the children and their potential. Friendships up and down age groups are encouraged and nurtured. This helps younger pupils feel a sense of belonging, and inspires in older students the qualities of supportiveness and care which foster the warm, friendly atmosphere so many visitors notice.

We are a non-selective school meaning that there is no entrance exam and admission is possible at any time throughout your child’s education.  Fees are set at levels which offer tremendous value for money, particularly in the light of what is on offer to all the pupils at the school and our excellent academic results. We also offer a range of scholarships and bursaries and you can find further details of these within this section of our website or by contacting me.

Our approach to an individual child at St Joseph's is to imagine how we would want our own children to be cared for: who is looking after their pastoral needs, who is stretching and inspiring them, who is firing them with a love of learning and who is monitoring their progress and helping to plan their future?

Our ethos is to create an inclusive school that helps us to ensure that each child is as happy, secure and fulfilled as they can be.

We have been very busy with registrations recently, with certain year groups nearing or at capacity. Please organise an appointment to see us or attend one of our open days if you are interested in a place for your child. The pupils will happily take you on a tour of the school, you can meet class teachers then sit down with the Head Teacher over a cup of coffee… hopefully you will leave with a good sense of what St Joseph’s could offer your child and your family.

If you would like to discuss admissions or book an appointment, please do not hesitate to contact me on 01566 772580 or registrar@stjosephscornwall.co.uk

I look forward to meeting you soon.

With best wishes,

Rebecca Walker
