We are a thriving and happy Catholic school, providing a broad and balanced curriculum. We take a holistic approach to education; focusing on developing the whole child with Christ at the centre of all we do.

Catholic education is the 'core of the curriculum' (Saint Pope John Paul II) and the foundation of the whole educational process. At St Joseph’s we ensure that every child enjoys and achieves, whilst developing the confidence to be independent learners who know how to make informed decisions about the choices they make in life.

We are committed to the partnership of home, school and Parish and through all parties working together our children will be sure of success. Through this joint commitment we welcome new members to our school to grow and work in the love of Christ as we live out our mission statement,
'Treat others as you would like to be treated.'
