Welcome to Our Lady and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School.
We are a small and caring Catholic school, in the heart of The New Forest,
whose Gospel values engender a happy, inclusive, family atmosphere. Our modern school has fantastic ICT and other facilities, and is set in beautiful grounds.
Our aim is to provide your children with the skills to achieve everything
they are capable of. We do this through our exciting, high-quality curriculum, which allows your child to learn in different and varied ways.
Children are encouraged to become successful learners, confident
individuals and responsible citizens. We value each child’s contribution to our community and look to develop the whole child to be a happy, well-mannered and secure young person.
We strive for high standards; expect superior academic results and
excellent behaviour. We want all our children to develop their full potential, achieve their personal best and enjoy their school experience.
We are the only Catholic school in the New Forest and take children from
Lymington, Brockenhurst, Lyndhurst, New Milton, Milford on Sea and Waterside parishes. As a voluntary aided school, founded in 1859 by the Catholic
Church, we operate under the provision of the Portsmouth Diocese.
With approximately 100 children arranged in four classes, we can offer a
reassuring education where we can care for each child’s individual needs, building their confidence and encouraging them to be creative and independent to prepare them for their life beyond primary
Selecting the right school for your child is one of the most important
decisions you will have to make. Please take the time to look through our website
and download our prospectus. We also invite you to visit the school, to
appreciate its character and see first-hand the high quality of care and learning that Our Lady and St Joseph School provides.
If there is anything further you need or any information you feel is
missing from our site then please contact us.
If you would like to apply for a place then please contact the school and
we will either advice if spaces are available or for year R entrance explain the admission procedure.
I look forward to meeting you.
