St Joseph's goes Co-ed
St Joseph's goes Co-ed

In September 2009, the Governors of St Joseph’s College in Reading made the landmark decision to move from being a predominantly girls school, to becoming a co-educational school, with the first intake of boys to take place in September 2010. On the first day of term we are very excited about the enrolment of 22 new boys into the College to bring the total roll to 300 pupils. Maureen Sheridan, The Head, said ‘We are all very excited and it will make for a very enriching atmosphere. We are blending our traditions and history with a more gender free environment and it is a truer reflection of the real world our pupils will meet when they go to University and their careers. It is a small beginning but we are optimistic and it is very heartening to hear from families with boys and girls that they can join up for the first time in the School.’

The College has invested in a larger Sixth Form common room, new toilets and changing rooms, converting its netball court to include a five a side football pitch and basketball court and extra staff training to tailor the curriculum for boys.

Prospective parents and pupils who wish to find out more about co-education at St Joseph’s are invited to visit the School on Tuesday 21st September, for either the Preparatory Open Morning from 09:15 am – 12:15 pm or the College Open Afternoon commencing at 2:00 pm. Parents are also welcome to call Registrar Debbie Kendrick on 0118 966 1000 to arrange an individual visit to the school, at a time convenient to them.
