Annually we send out a Parental Questionnaire to obtain Parents' feedback on the school and here are some comments...
"St. Joseph's Preparatory School does well at - Pastoral Care; Sports; General quality of teaching / staff are excellent. My son is taught by a set of dedicated teachers who care for his academic and pastoral well-being. I would recommend the school to anyone. My son loves his sport and the school provide a wide variety that he is actively encouraged to take part in. The teaching staff are always willing to do anything they can to help, either with our son or us as parents. The school values are demonstrated by Mrs Hutchinson in her role as Headteacher and this flows through the entire school making it a great environment to learn all the skill my son will require for later life".
"My daughter has fun, I am confident that she is learning lots and I am currently amazed at her progress and knowledge about different things; she loves school and that makes us happy! I would not want anything to be changed or developed".
"I like the small groups of children per teacher. The school is strict on discipline and the education itself and after school care is very good".
"The best thing about St. Joseph’s Prep is the personal approach to each child. My son is now much more confident in groups. His knowledge and learning has improved and we as parents continue this with him at home. He loves to read and loves coming to school".
"The Early Years Department has a close-knot relationship between the children, staff and parents. We appreciate the regular feedback via the diary and other means. My daughter took a long time to settle after our separation, but now is completely comfortable with the Nursery environment and enjoys it immensely".
We asked Parents' what the school does well at...
"The school informs us and reminds us as to the events that our children are taking part in. They have a smart uniform and all the children and teachers know one another very well".
"The school does well at pastoral care, involving parents and provides a warm welcoming environment for new parents. The school is very informative and the communication and reminders by text and e-mail are always good".
"The family ethos, level of challenge, extra-curricular activities and teaching staff do well".
