St Joseph's Catholic Primary Academy

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Welcome to our website! We hope you enjoy having a look round! Hover over the tabs for the different aspects of school life as well as scrolling down on this page. We do hope all our families will join us for the first Advent Mass this Saturday at 6pm in church! The choir will be singing and it will be a lovely way to begin the season together as a school and parish community! Mrs Hodges
