Congratulations to Lydia Uglow for becoming the runner up in the South West regional finals in the ‘Future Chef’ competition at Tiverton

8000 students entered this competition from all over the country. Lydia won the Cornwall heat in December and competed against 8 other students in February 2011.

Lydia’s food was not only tasted great but her presentation was superb and the judges also commented on how calm and unflustered she was. 

Apparently there was only 1 point between Lydia and the winner who now goes on to the finals in London in March.

Along with a certificate Lydia was presented with her own chefs Whites and apron with her name embroidered on them and a HIX recipe book.

St Joseph’s School, Launceston has once again achieved GCSE examination results that are well above the national average and we are very proud of our pupils hard work. 

100% of our year 11 pupils achieved 5 or more A* to C grades, (including Maths and English). With over 60% of the grades at A and A* , approximately three times the national average.  

As St Joseph’s continues to develop, welcome boys into the senior years, and invests in its infrastructure it is important to note that we aim to achieve not only excellent results, in a non-selective environment, but also happy, confident and hardworking young people who can enjoy a range of extra-curricular activities as well as the academic essentials.  

Headmaster Mr Graeme Garrett said:“These fantastic results reflect the endeavour of every pupil at throughout their years at St Joseph’s.  Everyone who works at the school is very proud and it is a definite team effort between the teachers, the parents and the pupils that ensures our successes.  Our pupils deserve these results for the commitment they have shown and it has been a privilege to help to nurture that success.”

St Joseph’s School, Launceston is extremely proud to announce its 2010 Key Stage 2 results and, again they were significantly above the national averages.  

All our Year 6 pupils sit the Key Stage 2 exams and 100% achieved Level 4. With nearly 60% achieving a Level 5.  Over the last 4 years about 60% of results have been at the upper Level 5.

It should be noted that St Joseph’s aims to achieve excellent results, in a non-selective environment, in the firm belief that pupils should have time not only to enjoy what they learn, but to enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular activities too.  

Headmaster Mr Graeme Garrett said:“This outstanding news consolidates our position as one of the Southwest’s most successful independent schools.  We’re very proud of all the hard work which has made these fantastic results possible, our staff are to be congratulated as are the parents, but the day belongs to the pupils, it is wonderful to see them justly rewarded for their commitment and endeavour.  It is a privilege to have been part of their success.”
