Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to St Joseph’s – A good Catholic school in Workington.

I hope you find this website useful and gives you a flavour of what makes our school distinctive and to understand what makes us such a loving community.

I warmly invite you to visit us. We enjoy showing parents and students around our school. If you are looking at one of our staff vacancies, please make an appointment to come and see us. This is a lovely school to work in.

St Joseph’s is celebrating its 90th birthday in December 2019. This makes us very proud to know that we have a longstanding excellent reputation for educating the young people of Workington. Our students benefit from a school which aspires to have a warm, friendly atmosphere but which also focusses on developing young people with Faith, a love of learning and a love of life. Our #Living, #Loving # Living focus means that we set extremely high standards to create a school where we work hard but where we have joy and celebration too.

We have a Mission Statement which captures all of the above in carefully chosen words. Please read it. Our aim is to live this Mission Statement every day.

We are proud that our school is Ofsted Good and has good exam results, but we are also proud that this is a school where students are cared for and where everyone becomes part of the St Joseph’s family.
