Welcome to St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Hendon

St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is a vibrant and historic part of the neighbourhood of Hendon in North West London. Founded in 1882 initially as a boarding school, the school has survived two World Wars and gone from strength to strength. We work to give our children the best possible education in the fullest sense of the word – academically, spiritually and emotionally.

The gospel principles of loving your neighbour, of compassion and of justice permeate all aspects of our school life. We are a friendly and outward-looking school community, welcoming families from all parts of the world. We are proud of our success in academic exams and achievements on the sports field, and we also have good links with local, national and international charities and organizations.

Please take time to browse our website to find out more about the school and the fantastic activities we are involved in.

    AGM & Second Hand Uniform Sale
    Dear Parents & Carers As you know from the school calendar and the list of dates that was sent to you, the Friends Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Friday the 13th of March. Taking your preferences into account from the survey, it shall be held after pick up at 3.20pm followed by a second hand uniform sale. All are welcome to bring their children to the AGM and we can only go ahead with both if we have sufficient attendance. The charity’s AGM is where we give you an update on the previous financial year including a report on the income and spending so that you know what we have bought for the school. It is also where Trustees (Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary) and ordinary committee members are elected. If you wish to nominate yourself for any of these roles then please do so in writing for the attention of the current Chair, Adela Holickova, and slip your nomination under the door of the Friends room (opposite the dining hall) confirming which role you are interested in. Alternatively, please email her on adela.thefriends@yahoo.com by Wednesday the 11th of March 2020. It is also an opportunity to put forward your thoughts on how the money we raise is spent. We have made a recent announcement committing substantial funds to resources that support children with Special Educational Needs and to jointly fund a new library but we welcome your thoughts on where else you feel we can add value. We have a healthy bank balance at the moment and intend to continue this momentum with your support. We shall aim to keep the meeting as brief and to the point as possible so that directly after closing we can press on with the uniform sale. We look forward to seeing you there. Thank you for your continued support The Friends
