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.

    Stay Safe Get Active Initiative
    Dear Parents As a school we would like to support the 'Stay Safe Get Active' initiative - see link below. The aim is that parents park 5 minutes away from school and walk the rest of the way. If your child is travelling the rest of the way (or all the way) by scooter please remember that the school is a scooter free zone, children will have to dismount the scooter on school grounds. To make things easier for parents with scooters, bikes or prams we are looking into a scooter/bike/pram park. More info to follow. https://www.modeshiftstars.org/staysafegetactive/ We hope you all join the 5 minute walking bubble and we look forward to seeing many of you walking to school. Kind regards
