We are pleased to announce Slough Town FC and St Joseph’s Catholic High School are to form a partnership whereby the School will provide the academic education for the Slough Town FC Academy scholars from September 2016.
Head teacher Ciran Stapleton, from St Joseph’s Catholic High School commented; "this is a great opportunity for both Slough Town Football Club and the school to contribute further to the community which we serve. It’s timely, as the new stadium and facilities embody a shared understanding of creating a first class environment together with a culture of outstanding ambition and practice, sentiments which both institutions share".
Steve Easterbrook, Chairman of Slough Town FC added "I am delighted that we are able to provide this and also extremely pleased that the Academy will now be based in Slough and has partnered with St Joseph’s school. I have been informed that this week St Joseph's Catholic High School has reported, once again, that they have the school’s best ever A level and BTEC results – which is a fantastic achievement. With the first team due to return home after 13 years in exile - these really are exciting times!"
