The ??20 million state-of-the-art building at Ocotal Way, brings together pupils who used to be educated at two separate sites nearly 2 miles apart.
The opening will be celebrated by Mass following which a memorial plaque will be unveiled by the Roman Catholic Bishop of Clifton, the Right Reverend Declan Lang.
Amongst the distinguished guests attending will be the High Commissioner for Uganda, Her Excellency Joan KN Rwabyomere. St Joseph’s is twinned with St Cyprians Secondary School in Western Uganda.
Staff and pupils from St Cyprian’s school will also be present at the ceremony and are staying in Swindon as guests of the college for twelve days.
Peter Wells, Head Teacher, (pictured above with pupils) said: "The position of the new school in the centre of Swindon is a symbol of the importance that education plays in the Borough, and the new college would not have become a reality without the contribution of a whole range of people and organisations, not least Swindon Borough Council, the Diocese of Clifton, the DfES, the college governors and the Catholic Community here in Swindon."
"The formal opening gives us an excellent opportunity to say thank you, and for all guests to view the wonderful facilities and enjoy the dramatic architectural design of the College, which is based on the concept of a central street."
"The college has been designated as a specialist school for Business and Enterprise, and our business partners will be amongst the many guests who will also include people from other Faiths, the local community, the Diocese, the world of education and former teachers and pupils."
