OUR SCHOOL CREST
“Caritas Scientia”
is a Latin phrase
which means
“Charity and Knowledge”
Our school motto is
“Achieving
Excellence Through Partnership”
and
we believe that all aspects of school
life in St Joseph’s are enshrined in both
those phrases.
CHALLENGE & ASPIRATION
WITH CONFIDENCE &
HAPPINESS
We are extremely proud of the academic success of
our pupils with consistently high levels of achievement.
However, we realise that there is more to the life of a
school than examinations and study.
St Joseph’s College offers a wide range of activities and
experiences for our young people. We understand that
children should be fully engaged and motivated while at
school. They should be happy in their school life and we
wish to develop in them the attitudes and skills which will
help them succeed in their future lives.
