At St. Joseph’s we believe in working hard and playing hard and this is a philosophy that is embedded throughout the school! We have Healthy Schools status and are currently the national FA charter school! Extra curricular activities are very popular amongst both boys and girls at the school and we like to give the children every opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities to develop their skills and reach their full potential both in and out of the classroom.
All these clubs are run by volunteers who give up their time and are free for the children to attend. After school clubs usually run from 3:30pm until 4:30pm. In addition to the clubs below, we also take advantage of additional opportunities provided by specialists who come into our school on a regular basis to teach brass, guitar and piano lessons.
