Welcome to St. Joseph Preparatory School Website

The School accepts children into the Early Years Foundation Class in the term in which they are three. (Government Voucher Funding applies for three and four year olds).

The School is made up of:
EARLY YEARS
Early Years Foundation (Nursery) Class and Early Years Reception Class
 
KEY STAGE ONE
Year 1 and Year 2
 
KEY STAGE TWO
Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6

The academic year is divided into three terms with a mid-term holiday and the children’s reports are given twice yearly, one half year report just before the Spring mid-term holiday and the second towards the end of the Summer term.  An opportunity to discuss your child’s progress is given on Parents Evenings.  There is an additional Parents’ Evening held before the October half-term break.

To encourage consideration, helpfulness, and maximum academic effort, the school is divided into four ‘Houses’ (St Andrew, St David, St George and St Patrick) who compete for the reward of house points.
