St Joseph’s Art Department

St Joseph’s Art Department has been lucky enough to be selected to receive a piece of Art made by practicing artist Kirsty Mason. The theme was Birds and we have been given a beautiful, hand made, 3D Magpie with felt and stitched details. We also received a stunning stitched feather and sketchbook of feather studies.
We are excited to use the Magpie in the department to spark ideas and discussion with pupils and give them an opportunity to access a practicing artist’s work .
We think you’d agree it’s lovely.

St Joseph’s Macmillan Coffee Morning Success

We sold delicious baked goods to raise funds for the cancer charity. The morning featured a number of stalls with a raffle, tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits. Pupils from Year 10 planned and ran the stalls themselves and deserve a lot of credit and praise for playing such a key role in raising an impressive amount for Macmillan.

Thank you to Miss Jackson and all the staff and pupils for supporting the event.

Following the very well-received evening that we introduced last year, we have developed this further to include Year 9 students in a series of information-giving talks from a variety of presenters.

In addition to our own staff, who will explain how best to prepare for exam success, there will be presentations from the West Cumbria Catholic Sixth Form Centre, the University of Cumbria and INSPIRA.

It is intended that students and parents will leave having been encouraged to work together and more closely with school towards getting their best possible GCSE results. They will gain a greater understanding of the study and revision skills required for exam success, and how managing this can put them in a much stronger position to gain further qualifications and ultimately better jobs in their future.


FREE Online Training for Parents

Dear Parent/Carer
As you will be very aware, Child Sexual Exploitation(CSE) is a growing concern throughout the UK.
Unfortunately, CSE is taking place here in West Cumbria, and as responsible adults, we ALL have a duty to safeguard our children and young people.
CSE is a hidden crime – it can affect any child, from any background. The mistake parents often make is that it won’t happen to ‘my child’. This is exactly how the people who commit this horrific crime often manage to slip under the radar before they are caught but after the damage has been done…
There follows a link to a FREE online training resource, that simply requires you to enter a few details, including your email address.
It is very worthwhile, and I do hope you find it useful; if you require any further support, or have any questions, please contact me at the school.
Any feedback would be appreciated.

Assistant headteacher & Designated Safeguarding Lead,

European Day of Languages

The European Day of Languages is a yearly event held on 26 September to celebrate the linguistic diversity of Europe and to encourage language learning.

At St Joseph’s we are celebrating European Day of Languages across the school with quizzes and activities. We have been fortunate enough to receive some fantastic resources from the European Commission which have been shared with the pupils across all year groups.

Ms Lightfoot
Head of MFL


Here at St Joseph’s High School, we place the safety and emotional well-being of our students at the very top of our priorities.
e-safety is forever at the forefront of the work we do in school, and as technology moves so quickly, adults often lag behind our children and young people.
To this end, we attach an online training module, designed specifically for parents  by
‘e-Safety Support’. We also attach for your information, a document that lists many of the abbreviations young people use online to disguise to parents and responsible adults, what they are saying or doing to their friends/online contacts (WHOEVER that may be) .
I hope you find both useful, and if I can help you further, or answer any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at school.
Mr Kinsella
