Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic PRIMARY SCHOOL

Headington, Oxford 


Our Patron Saint is St Joseph the Worker – he listened to what God asked of him, he worked as a carpenter, he protected his family with love and took action when needed. 


St Joseph's example can be seen throughout our school.  His example guides our Mission and ethos - protecting with love all that God gives us.  His example is seen in the work we do - the breadth and excellence of our curriculum with a special focus on design & technology (he was a carpenter!) and in our challenge for our pupils to excel academically.  His example is seen in our focus on social teaching and taking action when needed.  


Our community is a wonderful mix of both Catholic and non-Catholic families who welcome our vision and ethos.  We offer a broad, rich curriculum built on our core, Catholic values. It is a curriculum that celebrates academic excellence, celebrates our diversity and is fully inclusive.  We invite you to come and look around, meet our staff and pupils and see an ambitious and broad curriculum that offers so much more.  


We provide opportunities for children to become independent, articulate, resilient individuals with a strong sense of social responsibility and a desire to make a positive contribution to our world.   


Please have a look at the video of our large beautiful site below, and then come and meet the pupils and staff who make our school such a special place.
