Saint Margaret Ward Catholic Academy

At St Joseph's Catholic Academy, we are extremely proud of our close working relationship with our Collegiate High School, St Margaret Ward Catholic Academy. We work closely with the staff from all departments to share expertise and good practice and to ensure our curriculum is an all-through curriculum from 2 - 19, resulting in a seamless transition to High School.  Our children visit Saint Margaret Ward on many occasions throughout their time at St Joseph's and so are very comfortable with the environment and staff when they move.

At St Margaret Ward Catholic Academy, our aim is to provide children with the best possible opportunities for success. We aspire for all students to succeed through excellent teaching, uncompromising standards of behaviour and persistent unconditional care. Through the inspiration we find in the words and example of our three patrons, St Margaret Ward, St John Henry Newman and St Jean Baptiste De La Salle, we aspire to provide an education that produces responsible, compassionate, tolerant, courageous, and non-judgmental young people who live their lives with integrity. 

We have a well-established transition programme which includes a wealth of activities for students throughout the Newman Catholic Collegiate from Year 2 to 6. Many children have greatly enjoyed the plethora of enrichment activities and have benefited from the expertise, creativity and care that they have experienced from our school community.
