Welcome to SJCHS Workington – We have been serving our community of Workington and the surrounding areas for over 90 years providing quality education, pastoral support and advice/guidance to our students and their families and the local community.

We are a Good Catholic school according to our most recent OFSTED and Diocesan inspections. We have a strong tradition of ensuring that our students reach their desired next steps in employment or further education.

We are very proud of the achievements of our students and work extremely hard to maintain the high standards for which SJCHS has always been known. Care for the individual is at the very heart of what we do as a school.

The mission statement of the school is founded on: Living, Learning, Loving and Listening.



We want our students to become the best version of themselves.


We are a loving caring family, where your child will be known and cared for.


Academic rigour and character formation go hand in hand to support our students in the now and the future.


We listen and respond to the needs of our students, staff, and community.


We are very much a family at St Joseph’s where staff, pupils, parents, and governors work very closely to ensure that our students enjoy their time with us and perform to the best of their abilities in whatever field they feel comfortable.

If you have never been to our school, we would love to show you around. Please email Julie.Gaffney@sjchs.uk if you would like to visit and we can chat to you about how best to arrange this for you.

Mr I Nevitt
