What the school says...

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery is a unique place. Under the Trusteeship and care of the Passionist Order, the School has an individual identity that combines traditional values with a modern vibrant vision. We have the most amazing outdoor and indoor facilities for children to learn and play. We provide a very stimulating academic curriculum, together with a strong tradition of music and many additional activities including an environmental club, orchestra, knitting club, dance, drama and sport.
We are an Ofsted rated ‘outstanding’ school, with an ethos based on Faith, Community and a true partnership between school and the families of the children we teach. Our school life is rich in opportunities to learn and to worship both as individuals and as part of a strong, supportive environment. We are fortunate to have strong links with St Joseph’s Parish Community Church.
We are totally committed to the development of each child, to offer them the very best start to their formal education and to support their faith. We aim to provide an education that is rich in opportunities and experiences and one which influences a lifelong love of learning.

What the parents say...

My son is about to leave St Joseph's this year and I believe that he has been so very lucky to have been part of such a wonderful school community and magical place for learning. There are so many opportunities for children to shine and they are all little stars there. The grounds are natural and children are responsible for the Children's Growing Garden including animal care. There is music everywhere and a fairy-tale library where children forget the time when relaxing at lunch time. Warm, enthusiastic staff and smaller than average classes made my child progress both in confidence and academically. He has found his love of the violin and being responsible for the environment there. He has also learned that he struggles with focussing sometimes and has to take responsibility for that too. I am very happy with the first 8 years education that has helped me to raise my child to be a responsible, confident, happy and kind child with a strong faith that will help him in his life. Thank you St Joseph's.
