Welcome to St. Joseph's Convent Port of Spain

We are a medium sized, Roman Catholic secondary school; the oldest in Trinidad and Tobago, but our learners’ exceptional academic results reflect our commitment to innovation in teaching and learning. In addition, our students are encouraged to take part in a variety of extra-curricular activities and have distinguished themslves, our school. our country and our region in the areas of community service, sport and the creative and performing arts.

Rooted in tradition and faith, we offer students a vibrant environment that enriches character and inspires a lifelong passion for learning and personal excellence, while providing them with the skills, knowledge and values necessary to become confident, passionate, strong young women (and men) prepared to play leading roles in their community and the world.

In 2011, our school proudly celebrated its 175th anniversary, but we are happy to be able to use new technologies to improve the psychological, social and academic outcomes for our learners and to communicate with our entire learning community. We particularly wish to encourage our parents and alumni to use the opportunities available to keep in touch with us.

As you browse this site, you will see our learners - engaged and enthusiastic, compassionate and caring, articulate and ambitious and you'll discover what it truly means to be a Convent girl!


Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

The Ministry of Education sent out a Memorandum to Principals yesterday with the following information concerning Queries/Reviews of grades obtained in the recently completed June 2016 CXC examinations. CXC no longer automatically conducts a re-mark of the paper for which a candidate has requested a review. Instead CXC:-

a) conducts an Administrative Review to validate the accuracy and completeness of the scoring of the paper;

b) if an inaccuracy or a lack of completeness in the scoring is detected, this will be corrected, and the findings reported;

c) if the review finds that there is reason for further concern about the marking of a script, CXC will undertake to have the script re-marked;

d) where a re-mark is done, the resulting grade stands in the place of any previous grade;

e) when a re-mark results in an improved grade, the candidate’s review fee is fully refunded;

f) when a re-mark results in no change, or in a downward change of the candidate’s grade, no refund is made;

g) re-marked scripts do not benefit from borderline consideration.

The responses from CXC will be placed directly on the ORS and will be available to schools immediately. Please note that the internal deadline date to submit Query requests to the school is August 26th 2016.

Once again, in order to query a subject, a letter is to be written to the Principal indicating which Subject(s) and Unit(s) the student would like to query.  Each query costs $60BBD and a bank draft addressed to The Registrar CXC in the amount totalling the cost of subjects to be queried is to be submitted to the school’s office along with the letter.

For those who submitted requests for queries and who no longer wish to continue with the query, please visit the school’s office by Friday 26th August to collect your bank draft.

Thank you,

Anna Pounder (Principal).

Get Connected


The SJCPOS learning community is connected on Edmodo

Edmodo is a secure and private micro-blogging platform, built around closed group collaboration, which means only our students can join groups using a secret code provided by their teacher.This makes it easy for teachers, students and parents to stay connected and share information even while away from the classroom. 

Each student will receive a log in code and then set their own personal password. Parents will also receive a unique log in code, so that they may communicate privately with our teachers and administrators. You can even EdmodoMobile so we can stay connected- on the go!

Contact us...

Over the vacation period, we will be migrating our online presence in order to take full advantage of being approved as a Google Apps for Education campus. As part of this change, you may now contact us at
And don't forget to look out for our tweets @sjcposse!
