St. Joseph’s Catholic Infant and Junior Schools are located just short of 0.4miles away from one another, in the heart of Birtley. The two schools operate under one executive headteacher, one leadership team and a federated local governing committee.
The infant school is located on Mitchell Street – a short distance away from Birtley Fire Station.
The junior school is located on School Street – this was the original school, built in the 19th century.
