St. Joseph’s School was started in 1913 in Yorkshire Street by the Sisters of Mercy. In 1957 a new school was built at Park Hill, where three Sisters taught. It is still owned by the Sisters of Mercy, and Maria Whitehead is currently Headteacher.
St. Joseph’s is a small school with a warm, friendly atmosphere where the children are known personally by all the staff. We have a broad, enriched curriculum which provides many activities and opportunities, both sporting and musical. The children enjoy their learning experience and are encouraged to do their best, achieving excellent results.
The Catholic ethos permeates all areas of the school. Pupils learn to care for each other, and respect different cultures. We welcome children from all faiths.
The school has the benefit of extensive grounds, and offers a before and after school service as well as a 4-week summer school.
