Welcome to St. Joseph’s Infant and Junior Schools

St. Joseph’s Catholic Infant and Junior Schools are friendly, successful and high-achieving schools, in Birtley. We are a federation – meaning that although each school is on a separate site, we have one leadership team who oversee the day-to-day education of the children whom we serve.

Let us build a house where hands will reach beyond the wood and stone, to heal and strengthen, serve and teach, and live the Word they’ve known.

Built of hopes and dreams and visions, rock of faith and vault of grace; here the love of Christ shall end divisions:

All are welcome in this place.


Lord, in our daily lives, may we:

Love and serve like St. Joseph, care and protect like St. Joseph, work and teach like St. Joseph, show compassion and loyalty like St. Joseph, have trust and faith like St. Joseph.

We follow St. Joseph’s virtues and remember our significance in God’s world. Amen.
