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!


  • CXC GRADE QUERIES. The official result package has been received and queries are being processed at this time. Once you have collected your official result slip, to query CXC results, you should write a letter to Mrs Pounder,  indicating the specific Subject(s) and Unit(s).  Each query costs $60 Barbadian and a bank draft addressed to The Registrar, CXC in the amount totalling the cost of subjects to be queried must be submitted to the office with the letter.

The Ministry of Education advises however that 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 Monday 4th September 2017. If you submit requests for queries but decide against continuing, please visit the office by Tuesday 5th September, 2017 to collect your bank draft.

Get Connected


The SJCPOS learning community is connected on Edmodo - our secure and private micro-blogging platform, built around closed group collaboration, so 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 you may communicate privately with our teachers and administrators. You can even EdmodoMobile so we can stay connected- on the go!
