Welcome to our website

St Joseph's College has a long history and tradition as part of Dumfries' educational community. Many of the parents of today's students also studied here and think so highly of it that they send their sons and daughters to us. Our staff uses a variety of teaching methods to make learning fun. We try hard to foster an academic environment in which children feel comfortable so that they can study most effectively.

Free School Meals

The process for parents to apply for Free School Meals and a Clothing grant will be changing this academic year.  We are hoping this will make the process easier in that parents currently in receipt of Free School Meals.

An application form will have to be completed if a parent is not currently in receipt of a Free School Meal or Clothing Grant and a change of circumstances form will have to be completed if current applicants have any changes to their circumstances i.e. change of surname, address or bank details as well as having an additional child entering P1 or joining their family.

At present D&G are working on the process and application/formsand the school will keep you informed in the near future.
