Admissions to St Joseph's School

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School was founded by the Catholic Church primarily to provide education for children of Catholic families in the Parish of the Nativity of the Lord.

The school is conducted by its governing body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with the trust deed of the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton, its instrument of government, and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ.

The Governors intend to admit 90 pupils into the Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception Class) in September.

St Joseph’s are delighted to invite prospective parents to attend one of our open days this autumn.  Parents will have a school tour in small groups of 6 adults, on either Saturday 9th October 2021, or Saturday 6th November 2021.
