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.

    Please see the message below from Dr Lane: Good morning, We are truly lucky to be able to share the lovely grassed area in front of the school with the other occupants of the St Joseph’s site – especially during the warmer summer months. However, I must remind our parents that it is a jointly occupied space and the users of the St Joseph’s Pastoral Centre need access during the day. They have been prevented from using the space on occasions as some of our parents have been staying / chatting / letting children play in the space, especially at the end of the day. The manager of the Pastoral Centre has asked me to let parents know that she believes it to be a safeguarding issue for our families and Pastoral Centre users to access the space at the same time. Consequently, I must request that parents and children DO NOT use the space during, before or after the school day – even though it looks vacant and inviting – as it needs to be left available for the Pastoral Centre. Many thanks for your continuous support. Dr J Lane
