Welcome from the Headteacher

It is my pleasure to welcome you to St Joseph's School website and, if you are a prospective parent, I hope that what you discover about our school here will lead you on to what I know will be a great visit to the school itself. Parents who choose St Joseph's entrust us with the welfare and progress of their children - one of the most important jobs in the world - and it is a responsibility we take very seriously indeed.

I hope that the information on these pages will give you a taste of the many opportunities on offer here for all our pupils, both curricular, pastoral and in terms of the excellent extra-curricular provision we provide.

St Joseph’s is a happy, thriving school that offers every pupil a firm foundation for life, one where happy, successful children are at the heart of all we do. Pupils are encouraged to reach their full potential, whether academically, sport or the arts.

We have high expectations of every child and this combined with small teaching groups and excellent pastoral care ensures our pupils develop a confidence that is key to future success.

Visits to the school are welcomed and our pupils would be delighted to show you their school and talk to you about why they feel happy, challenged and proud of their achievements.

I look forward to meeting you in person in the near future.

Oliver Scott
Head Teacher
