St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Growing with Jesus

Our School

We are delighted to welcome you to our school and we hope that this is the beginning of a very happy, cooperative and successful partnership.

Our school (along with an on-site pre-school) is a very caring and successful learning environment where Ofsted said:

"Pupils of all ages and backgrounds get along well together. They are keen to celebrate each other’s achievements and actively seek to make a positive contribution to their school."

Your child’s school life is a journey and we want to do everything possible to ensure it is a stimulating and enjoyable process. We hope that you find this website useful and that you and your child will enjoy an active and happy life at St. Joseph's Catholic Primary School.

If you require any other information or you wish to look around the school, please contact the school office for an appointment.




St Joseph's is a warm and welcoming school offering our pupils a complete and rounded education in a caring and supportive environment.
