St Joseph’s Catholic High School, Slough, Berkshire

By: Head Teacher: Ciran Stapleton

In October 2013 St Joseph’s Catholic High School narrowly avoided being placed into Special Measures, scrapping a Requires Improvement judgment from Ofsted. Teaching was 50% Requires Improvement and/or Inadequate. Since then the school has improved from the 78 percentile Family Fischer Trust ranking for progress, to the top 4 percentile with a Progress8 of 0.44. Despite continuous examination year groups having an entry level significantly below national average on entry, the school now achieves above national average and received a ‘Good Judgment’ in January 2016. Now oversubscribed the student cohort grew from 683 to 767 where it serves the local community where 97% of its pupils live within a 3-4 mile radius. Our Sixth Form had a falling cohort of 42 in 2013, but has grown to 102. All students who applied for University in 2015 achieved their first choice and all bar one were the first of their families to gain access to a University placement.
