A warm welcome to our school.
The school is situated close to Durham city providing education for children from a rich variety of backgrounds. We strive to provide an excellent education for all our pupils within a caring, stimulating and motivating learning environment. To help us achieve this aim staff, governors and parents work in close partnership together with added support from the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle and the local parish church of St. Joseph’s. As a Roman Catholic school, our ethos is embedded in Christian values which underpin all areas of school life.
Our school is a happy, thriving primary school for children aged 4-11 years old. There are approximately 130 children on roll with six classes. In addition to our well qualified teaching staff we have a number of excellent learning support assistants who work across the school supporting and enhancing children's learning.
‘This is a good school with a strong community spirit. One pupil told the inspector, ‘We work together as one team, one family’. (Ofsted July 2010)
