League Tables

Following on from our best ever GCSE scores The Irish News today published the results from the top 50 non-selective schools. We are absolutely delighted that not only did we make the list but we finished in 34th position. This is our highest ever position in the table and the second time we have made the Top 50 schools in three years. This shows yet again that St Joseph’s is going from strength to strength and demonstrates why more and more parents are selecting St Joseph’s as their school of choice.

Catholic Schools Week

It was a busy week for the Religion Department who organised many events for our pupils during Catholic Schools Week. Staff and pupils attended the diocesan Catholic Schools mass in Banbridge, with focus and celebration on the theme of Environmental Sustenance. Pupils were present with a tree which will be planted in school as a reminder of our collective responsibility towards our shared home. Arch Bishop Martin celebrated Mass at St Therese Church Banbridge with all the Primary and Post Primary schools within the Diocese of Dromore. The theme for CSW is “Living in harmony with God’s Creation” . The Mass began with a pupil representative from each school carrying a handprint to the altar. T
