After School Clubs
We offer a wide variety of clubs at St Joseph's in order to enrich your child's learning journey with us. Clubs run for a term at a time and are rotated.
On occasion we may have to employ the services of a specialist teacher and a small contribution will be required from parents.
If a club has to be cancelled we will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible. However, on rare occasions they have to be cancelled at short notice and you will receive a text from school as soon as is possible.
