We are very proud of our school and all it has to offer, which includes:

  • Well-behaved, enthusiastic and talented children
  • Committed, enthusiastic staff who have high expectations and are here to make a difference
  • Active, supportive parents and governors who involve themselves in all aspects of school life
  • A positive ethos of learning and achievement, which ensures that every child matters- we are the first school in North Yorkshire to achieve the Investors in Pupils Award
  • Strong links with St Joseph’s RC Church and St Joseph’s Pre-School
  • A wide range of resources and facilities to support children’s learning including ICT resources that result in true, interactive learning
  • An excellent range of extra-curricular activities to engage and extend children’s interests beyond the classroom
  • An attractive extensive site, with bright classrooms, lovely playgrounds and playing fields with far-reaching views across Harrogate and beyond 
  • Easy local free parking
  • Breakfast Club from 7.30am and After School Club until 6.00pm, run in school by St Joseph’s Grangers

If you are considering sending your child to St Joseph’s, I hope our website will help you with your decision.  We would love to welcome you in person to hear the sound of laughter, see our children engaged in active learning and to smell the school dinners, so don’t hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit.
