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 the care we provide for our children. We aim for each child to thrive within our school community and 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.

Our school has very supportive parents and bright, well-behaved, 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.
