Headteacher's Welcome

We always start the brand new academic year with great enthusiasm and faith that God will guide us in the right direction for success and happiness for everyone.

There is always a lovely family atmosphere here at St. Joseph's that is a genuine, caring and nuturing environment for any child to be a part of.  We go that extra mile to ensure that we encourage every child that walks through our door to reach their own potential; no matter what that may be.  Everyone has their own individual talents and we are proud of the array of wonderful children we get to meet.

This website is a window into the life at St. Joseph's Catholic Primary School which will give you important information about us.  It is designed to provide for you a whole range of details concerning the curriculum, school development, personnel, our Governors, the Friends of St. Joseph’s and many other aspects of school life. 


Together at St. Joseph’s

We Learn to Love

Following Jesus,

Sharing our Gifts


Building God’s World


Here at St. Joseph’s we do our best to challenge and support all our children so that every child has the opportunity to excel and achieve their potential.  As a team, we endeavour to provide a rich, exciting and diverse curriculum so that each child can experience a varied yet stimulating education within a small and homely environment in the very heart of Stockport town centre.

Our sub Mottos of ‘Anam Cara’ ("soul friend" in religion and spirituality) and ‘Where we Learn to Love and Love to Learn’ indicate our intimate approach of creating a spiritual haven where our children can grow and flourish in a loving and homely way along a path that Jesus wants us to take.

All our children strive for success and happiness encouraged by a committed staff, who by knowing and caring for each child, provide wonderful opportunities to enhance their development.

We look forward to working with you and your children as they embark upon the next stage of their learning journey, as we work together in Faith to challenge, support and prepare our children as future citizens of this 21st century.

Mrs. Claire Spinks Headteacher and all the Staff at St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School.
