This is an exciting time to become part of our dynamic team. Situated in the heart of Reading, St Joseph’s College places an emphasis on providing an all-round education: academic, pastoral, social and spiritual, where pupils develop the attributes of commitment, collaboration, confidence, communication and compassion through the various aspects of school life. During the last couple of years, the College was shortlisted for the TES Wellbeing of the Year Award; recognised as one of the top 25 influencers and innovators in the Independent Sector at the i25 awards; featured in the Parliamentary Review, and was a finalist at the Independent School of the Year Award.
For us, success is about more than just exam results or awards. We celebrate each pupil as an individual, and aspire for them to leave St Joseph’s as mature and confident citizens, ready to tackle life head on with energy and vigour. You will be fully supportive of the College Catholic tradition and expected to contribute to the full life of the School.
