Student Support

Our aim is for every student to do the best that they possibly can, to be the best version of themselves as that provides the most number of options for future pathways and helps students become independent, confident and equipped young adults.

Pastoral Support

The pastoral team at St Joseph’s has many years of experience. Students will be supported by a sympathetic and experienced tutor, Head of Year and the Head of Sixth Form.  On a daily basis, you will be in direct contact with members of your pastoral support team.  Any student with a SEND need is also supported by the school SENCO with provision put in place and all EAA needs met for all key tasks and assessments. Everyone is provided with every chance to succeed.

Academic Support

We have an excellent range of courses to suit different pathways making sure that you can find the subjects to get you where you want to be.  Curriculum leaders will monitor your academic progress and put in place supportive intervention when required to ensure you are on a pathway to success.  St Joseph’s is full of opportunities to enhance your education including links to universities and local business to help you to reach your goals and full potential.

Aspiration programme

We have designed a study skills programme here at St Joseph’s to help students to plan out their time in sixth form to ensure that they get the best out of sixth form and make progress towards target grades and get them ready for their future.

The programme is delivered through assemblies, taught workshops and a robust tutor activities programme.  You will be supported and guided through revision, mental wellbeing, CV writing, UCAS and apprenticeship applications and much more.
