Letter from Bishop Seamus thanking us for our commitment to Catholic Education following our recent Catholic Inspection

St. Joseph’s have successfully completed their Catholic Inspection with a ‘GOOD’  result.

‘St Joseph’s is a good Catholic school. It is an inclusive community where everyone is welcomed and valued. The motto taken from the mission statement ‘Walk in the light of Christ’, is at the heart of everything the school does’.
