The move to Post 16 education is an extremely important stepping stone in the holistic development of every individual. At St. Joseph’s College, we aim to give all students the opportunity to excel in the academic, social and sporting aspects of school life. As a Catholic community, we provide an ethos grounded in the teaching of the Church.
Life as a sixth former at St Joseph’s is a very different experience because students are older and have different needs. We encourage them to become independent learners and expect them to take on more responsibility for their own development and learning. Greater freedom is given and is matched with greater expectations of increased responsibility and the need to be seen as role models for the rest of the school. Students’ performance is closely tracked and monitored throughout their courses and support given by subject teachers and tutors. St. Joseph’s College 6th Form will provide each student with the highest possible excellence in terms of academic standards, as well as a safe and caring environment. Examination results at post 16 reflect this.
In conclusion, I offer to both students and parents, a caring environment which coupled with good teaching, hard work and support from home will lead to academic and social success.
ORGANISATION OF THE SIXTH FORM
St. Joseph’s College Sixth Form offers a wide range of educational pathways which are individually devised. Emphasis is placed on the needs of the individual, and programmes of study are negotiated between the tutor and the individual.
At the start of the AS course each student is placed into an ISF (Independent Study Faculty) linked to their vocational or tertiary aspirations. The ISF is the registration and tutorial group for the duration of their A levels and combines like-minded students from Year 12 and Year 13.
Subject-specific details are found within the individual descriptions inside this brochure. Actual subjects and the option schemes will be reviewed in the light of demand from the students and the availability of the staff.
Every student at St. Joseph’s College will study a compulsory ‘Core Curriculum’, which includes Religious Education and a tutorial programme consisting of The Extended Project and ‘Life Skills’ activities. The core area is regarded as a central and valuable learning opportunity for all students. Further details are available on this website.
We have an eight point UCAS preparation program which encourages participation in:
There are many more social and fund-raising events, which all help to provide pleasure, entertainment and valuable support within the school.
When students leave they are encouraged to join the Old Josephian’s Association (popularly known as the 49 Club), an organisation which offers support for the College and provides extensive sporting activities.
The Sixth Form possess a large and attractive Study Centre with a smaller rear teaching annexe which provides a pleasant social environment. They double as study areas during lesson time.
We believe that, as a College, we are able to offer an excellent learning experience. We hope you are able to participate in it.
