St Joseph's was delighted to win Independent School of the Year at the hotly contested 2015 TES Independent School Awards. The judges said our school's courageous strategic and financial plan was a "trail-blazing approach" that "set an example to the rest of the sector" and saw us also win in the key category of ‘Financial/Commercial Initiative of the Year’.
Andrew Colpus, Headmaster, says: “It was a real leap of faith for our Governors to reduce the fees, and to pair this with significant investment. However, as a team we had huge conviction that it was the right thing to do, and this has been proven in the significant and consistent rise in pupil numbers across the school, from Early Years pupils aged three right up to our Sixth Formers aged 18.”
“And our journey isn’t over yet. Our investment programme is ongoing, and pupil numbers are continuing to rise. Our fees are still modest compared to other schools in our area, and I am delighted that St Joseph’s is able to open its doors to many who would not otherwise consider independent education to be an option.”
