Mrs McVea, Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to our website and to give you a glimpse into the life of the pupils at our school.

St Joseph's is a Catholic primary school in the beautiful town of Market Harborough.

In 2012 we converted to Academy status and are now a part of the Corpus Christi Catholic Academy Trust. We therefore work very closely with, St John Fisher Catholic Primary School in Wigston, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School in Leicester, St Thomas More Catholic Primary School in Leicester and Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School in Leicester.

We are also part of Our Lady of Victories parish in the Diocese of Nottingham. St Joseph's is at the heart of the local community and we are proud to have strong links with the parish, an extremely active PTFA and dedicated Governors. The school is an extremely welcoming and supportive environment where all members of our school community are respected and valued.

We take seriously our commitment to extended services for children and have a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and clubs on offer for children throughout the school. We are fortunate to have before and after school childcare facilities for parents who need provision. It is great for parents to know that their children are safe and cared for by people who share the school's aims.

St Joseph's is immersed in a creative curriculum that enables good academic achievement, but which is also creative and fun. The school has high expectations of behaviour and through our procedures children are equipped with life-long skills and self-esteem is raised. They also become aware of the wider community around them.

Our pupils are happy children who are encouraged to reach their full potential both academically and spiritually in a supportive Christian environment.

If you would like more information about St Joseph's or would like to view the school please do not hesitate to ring, it would be a privilege to welcome you to our school and share our mission with you.
