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.

    Sibling Photographs
    Dear Parents and Carers, During the recent Parent Consultation a small number of parents enquired about the option of purchasing sibling photographs from the school photographers following their next visit on 09 May 2024. We have raised the question with the photo studio who have informed us that they sell a product called sibling composite. The images of the siblings are put in the same mount so that they are side by side. Please click the link below which explains the product and shows you an example. https://www.sbsdigital.co.uk/how-to-create-a-sibling-composite-print/ Kind regards,
