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.

    Mobile Phones
    Dear Parents This is to remind you that children are not allowed to bring mobile phones into school except those in Years 5 or 6 who are travelling to and from school independently. The mobile phones will have to be handed to their teacher at the start of the day for safekeeping until the end of the school day. Please ensure that your child does not use the phone before or after school on school grounds. Thank you for your support in this matter. Kind regards, Mrs Ricketts ​

    School Disco Fundraiser
    Dear Parents, Carers and Staff The Friends would like to extend a very big thank you to all the parents & staff who volunteered their own free time to help run last Friday’s fantastic disco & science show. Excluding Reception who are still a little young for a disco, we calculate that 75% of the school’s children attended, allowing the Friends charity to raise a profit of £1,520, whilst working hard & having fun (in equal measure!) in the process. We also thank all parents/carers who bought a ticket for their child. Money raised will be added to funds accumulated from previous events and the committee have pledged to help the children’s education as follows: · £390 towards hi-vis coloured bibs to ensure child safety on school trips · £600 to fund subscriptions to a website called “Widgets” giving staff access to resources to support children with Special Educational Needs and English as a Foreign Language · £5,000 pledged towards jointly funding a new school library costing £10,000 (the school shall fund the other 50% and details of this project shall follow from the school in due course) Our aim is to continue to make a difference to the school’s provision of education for every child at St Joseph’s & we thank you for the support that you continue to show in making a collective difference to this cause. Many thanks, The Friends
