Head’s Welcome

“I am the way and the truth and the life,

no one comes to the father except through me.”

– John 14:6


Welcome to our website.  It is my absolute pleasure to introduce our mission to you, as Headteacher of this fabulous school.  St Joseph's is proud to be an academy school within the Xavier Catholic Education Trust.  We are a large Catholic primary school with 90 children admitted to Reception each year.  We also provide a Nursery provision, from 2 years old, which you can read about here.  


At St Joseph’s our motto is simple: The Way, The Truth, The Life.  Our Christ-centred approach encapsulates everything we strive to achieve for the remarkable children we serve. 


The Way – Capturing Hearts

We endeavour to help children establish happy, healthy relationships with each other and with God.


The Truth – Inspiring Minds

We commit to offering children a broad curriculum that promotes confidence and independence.


The Life – Awakening Souls

We believe children need rich opportunities to uncover their unique gifts and talents from God. 


We offer an education for the whole child; heart, mind and soul.  Our ultimate aim is to create a little piece of heaven on earth.  Our school prayer is our mission statement and summarises everything we strive for as we make that aim a reality: 


Lord Jesus Christ,

You are the way,

the truth and the life.


Capture our hearts 

to follow your way.

Enlighten our minds 

to seek your truth.

Awaken our souls 

to embrace this life.


St Joseph – pray for us!

St Francis Xavier - pray for us!
