As Principal of St Joseph’s College Ipswich, I have almost grown accustomed to being proud: proud of our delightful, funny, clever students, of our inspired and inspirational teachers, of our sporting and cultural successes, and of our ethos of kindness. The responsibilities of headship are certainly considerable but my job is a daily delight.
St Joseph’s holds Aspiration, Respect and Confidence as core values and all three came to the fore as the Covid-19 pandemic arrived. We were fully prepared for lockdown and I was fiercely proud as we switched from physical to online lessons, losing not a single hour of teaching time. Full timetables were maintained throughout the summer term and students are now back on our beautiful campus and thriving.
If you want to share in our pride, do visit us online at www.stjos.co.uk, and take up a place at one of our virtual events for prospective families.
