We are a group of parents, educators and clergy who want to offer the very best primary education; passing on the Catholic faith, while also making sure they can thrive in the modern world.
Our starting point
In our view, God should be at the core of education – Catholic feasts, weekly Mass, daily prayers and the like are an aid to children’s learning, especially given their inherent curiosity, energy and optimism.
Learning should be interesting and stimulating, but not optional – teachers will have an active, hands on role. However we recognise that parents are the primary educators of children, and they will have a fundamental part to play.
Lastly, we think that fresh air does us all good, and children benefit from regular games time as well as the opportunity to look after animals and grow vegetables.
We’re setting up St.Joseph’s to provide this environment, filling a gap in the choices currently available to parents like us. If this sounds like something that would interest you – as a parent, teacher, or supporter, then we’d love to hear from you.
