I am very proud to welcome you to St Joseph’s Catholic Middle School Hexham, a Partnership School of the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust.
We opened in 1976 as a purpose built middle school and quickly established a reputation as a happy, friendly and caring Catholic school which provided quality education. Today we are proud to maintain this reputation, catering for children of all abilities.
St Joseph’s has a strong Christian ethos which pervades our school, binding people together and encouraging everyone to give their best, and to strive for excellence, within an ordered an disciplined atmosphere. Our aim is to provide a community that is characterised by joy and purposeful learning. We are committed to the achievement of every single child regardless of his or her ability. People routinely comment on the friendly atmosphere that exists in the school but they also notice that it has a great sense of purpose.
We have three classes per year group with an average class size of 28 children and we have a very dedicated and hard working staff who fully embrace the aims of the school. Where possible the children are taught by specialists, particularly in the core subjects of maths, science and English.
We always encourage our children to do their best, whatever their ability and we expect the highest standards in all aspects of school life. This expectation is supported by a very active and effective home-school partnership. Visitors and parents comment upon the unique, friendly atmosphere that exists at St. Joseph’s so please feel free to contact the school if you wish to make a visit and experience the school at work and see that we are at the cutting edge of tradition.
If you would be interested in a visit to our school I would be honoured to show you around school personally.
