St Joseph’s Catholic Primary, Moorthorpe

St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Moorthorpe is a warm and welcoming Catholic community, where we strive to provide the best education possible.

We believe our school is a special place, well known for caring well for our children. Our aim is for each child to thrive within our school community and to fulfil their potential in every way possible. We want all children to find school life interesting, challenging and enjoyable, whilst feeling safe, secure and valued.

At St. Joseph’s Moorthorpe we have very supportive parents and bright, well-behaved and enthusiastic children. We work hard to ensure that we are a central part of the community of St Joseph’s Moorthorpe, and have a close relationship with our Parish Priest, Father Anthony Fenton. There is a strong emphasis on the Catholic faith at St. Joseph’s and our children are encouraged to live by Gospel values.
