Progression

Our aim at St Joseph’s is to give very students the chance to reach their full potential. Once students have successfully completed their courses, they will be ready to move onto the next stage in life. We can to ensure that all students are “future ready.”

We start early in year 12 to ensure that all students are aware of the different routes into further education and careers. They will receive information during Assemblies, General RE, Subject areas and through trips to local Universities and Careers events.
