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.

    Summer Fair 28th September & Tombola July 22nd
    Hey Parents/Carers & Grandparents, We're really sorry to say that the Summer Fair had to be postponed because of the bad weather. We tried to push through the rain, but it just didn't let up. For everyone's safety and to make sure we all have a blast, we decided to move the fair to Saturday, September 28th from 12 pm to 4 pm. If you bought tokens in advance, don't worry - you can still use them for the new date. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. The Tombola that was supposed to happen at the fair will now take place on July 22nd from 3 pm to 4 pm. It's open to kids and grown-ups, so let's make it some after-school fun! You can use your tokens to get tickets for this event too. If you've already got tokens, go ahead and use them for the Tombola. We hope to see you there! 😊 Wishing you all an amazing summer! The Friends of St Joseph’s

    Dear Parents & Carers, The Foodbank Box has now been relocated to the Main Entrance - opposite Mrs Cooper's Office. Please note that donated items will be collected and stored away at the end of each day. We would like to continue supporting the local Foodbank (Colindale) and if you are able to donate even just one item of food that would be wonderful (no fresh items or clothing please). Please see the Foodbank's suggested June wish list below but anything you can spare is much appreciated. The foodbank saw one of the busiest weeks they have experienced since lockdown – this has naturally had a huge impact on their stock levels and they are in desperate need of the following: – Baked Beans – ⁠Cereals – ⁠Coffee – ⁠Long life milk – ⁠Pasta – Pasta Sauce – Shampoo – ⁠Shower gel – Squash – Tinned Fruit – Tinned Tomatoes – Tinned Meat – ⁠Tinned Rice Pudding / Custard Thank you again for all your support!
