Sport

Sport is a key element of both education and extra-curricular activities at St Joseph’s. We offer a range of sports that suit boys and girls of every age and ability.

Sporting opportunities encourage teamwork and leadership, and develop strength both mentally and physically.

We currently offer sports including netball, football, hockey, rugby, tennis, basketball, athletics, dance, gymnastics and swimming.

Our facilities include an indoor heated swimming pool, an all-weather astro pitch for hockey and tennis, a gym and large grounds including two fields and netball courts. We are also located close to Reading University, and are able to make use of their facilities, including their Fitness Centre.

Both the Prep and Senior schools take part in matches against other local schools and compete successfully in local leagues for a number of sports. A number of our pupils have been chosen to represent their region or county in their chosen sport, and exceptional talent is always nurtured and supported.
