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.

    Allergy Alert
    Dear Parents & Carers, Nuts of any kind are not permitted in Barnet schools. This is to ensure that those with nut allergies are kept safe at all times whilst they are on our school premises. Please make sure all healthy snacks and packed lunches are nut free. This also includes any food products that state, 'may contain nuts'. Chocolate spread that 'may contain nuts', is also not permitted in sandwiches. Food or drink items found to be containing nuts or stating may contain nuts, will be disposed of and may result in your child having to have a school dinner. Thank you for following our school policy and helping us keep children safe. Kind regards, Mrs Keating Deputy Head Teacher
