Inspiration on and off the sports field
Sport is an integral thread in the tapestry of life at St Joseph’s College. We are proud of our rich and illustrious history of supporting elite student athletes.
As a TASS Dual Career Accreditation Scheme accredited site, St Joseph’s is able to support many student-athletes each year. Services include physiotherapy, nutrition, lifestyle support, psychology strength and conditioning and a private medical scheme.
The dual career support structure and academic flexibility policies are central to the help available to athletes based at the campus. For student-athletes, the academic flexibility policies means they have the opportunity to access online notes or resources, are able to arrange catch up sessions with teaching staff, or even reschedule deadlines or exam dates in exceptional circumstances.
With our enviable track record of preparing young people for careers as professional sportsmen and women, St Joseph’s believes the recognition by TASS will allow us to support even more talented athletes and will build connections with other local sporting institutions.
We are proud of our thriving sport participation programme for all students, from 2 to 19 years and our elite training in Rugby, Football, Netball and Cricket. Our strong partnerships in professional sport include Ipswich Town FC, Northampton Saints RFC and Ealing Trailfinders RFC.
