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.

Open Mornings

We hold Open Mornings for prospective parents in the Autumn Term, which includes an address by the Headteacher, The Early Years Foundation Team and the St Joseph's (Parents) Association, followed by a school tour with our wonderful Year 6 tour guides.

The dates of our next Open Mornings are Thursday 10th October 2019, and Tuesday 12th November 2019.

Tours of the school outside of these Open Mornings can also be accomodated, usually on a Tuesday morning at 10.00am.  Please contact the school office if you would like to arrange a visit.
