Faithful to God. United, we excel.



Our School Website offers a small window into the community of St. Joseph's, Halifax where many exciting, prayerful and challenging events and activities take place - daily.

 We are a proud Catholic School serving the parishes of Sacred Heart and St. Bernard's, St. Theresa's Queensbury and St. Columba's, Pellon.

We hope you enjoy finding out more about our Faith Life Work, which is an intrinsic part of everything we do at St. Joseph's Halifax. In addition you will see evidence of  the exciting curriculum that we provide for our pupils through the dedication and hard work of every member of our school community.


 As a school we  ensure that each child makes progress relative to their starting points (both academically and spiritually) and every family is supported, through  the extensive pastoral opportunities we provide. We are proud to share a growing number of OoSH (Out of School Hours) clubs for pupils from Reception to Year Six. Our committed staff work tirelessly to ensure better life chances for every pupil in our care.  We challenge all our pupils, through our Mission Statement which acknowledges that acknowledges that as well as being united, we  want everyone to excel in all aspects of life. 


Please feel free to contact the school for additional information on anything you read, or to arrange a visit.


Kind regards,

Mrs Angstmann

We invite you to be aware of our work as a Rights Respecting School.




The whole school had great fun in learning about other countries and faiths in our world.  Each class studied a different country and shared what they had learnt in a market stall set-up held in the afternoon.


 'children helping children'

We raised money and said many prayers for children living in poverty around the world. 

The day was based around the 5 colours of the Mission Rosary, with each colour representing a different continent.  We even formed a whole school human rosary in our playground.
