School Closure confirmed
St Joseph’s Convent Preparatory School will close on 31st August this year, as the proposal to close has now been agreed.
A proposal to close the school was announced to staff and parents in March this year.
Greg Thompson, Chair of Governors, said,
“Following consultation with staff, and time spent continuing to explore other avenues, we have been unable to secure long term investment, and have been left with no alternative but to close the school at the end of the summer term. This is an incredibly sad decision for all involved. The Governors, Head Teacher and Bursar, have explored many possible alternatives to keep the school open but, unfortunately, we have been left with no option but to close.
We have been incredibly proud of what the school has achieved over the last few years and I would like to thank staff, parents and our whole St Joseph’s School community for making that possible.
