St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Lancaster

Welcome to

St.Joseph's Catholic Primary School


At St. Joseph's we respect and care for each other,

we are all part of Jesus’ loving family

and follow in Jesus’ ways

and we will help each other

to be the best that we can be.


Currently we have places available in Nursery, Reception, Years 1,2,4,5 and 6.

Science week


The theme for the science week was 'Working like a Scientist'. All classes enjoyed conducting an Eggbert themed investigation so they could work scientifically. For example, in year 3 they investigated which sunglasses were the best for Eggbert's holiday in the sun. 

We also had two special competitions for the children. One was to describe CHANGE in the world and the other was to dress like a scientist. There were some AMAZING entries and the teachers really struggled to decide on the winners. You can see the winners of the costume competition above. 

On Thursday 15th March, we were very lucky and had Mad Science visit our school. They did an assembly on inventions and disocveries. Everyone loved it! Have a look at the pictures below and you will see why!

What a great week we had celebrating our love of books, here at St Joseph's.  We wrote our own stories, painted our own book inspired art works and dressed up as our favourite book characters.  (Take a look at the news and events section to see more photos)


One of our very artistic Year 3s won the Mayor of Lancaster's Christmas Card Competition. The card will be sent all over the world and this year the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William will all receive Leo's card in the post.  Well done.


Our Autumn Art Exhibition took place during the week of 20th November.  Every child worked with a local artist to produce work in a variety of media.  The exhibition was opened by Bishop Michael and was well attended by parents, pupils and the general public.  Well done to all.  Here's to next year.

Local Schools Geography and Computing Project

This term we have been working on a joint project with local schools, Skerton St Lukes and Ryelands. 

Focused on Geography and Computing skills, each year group has worked together to study the local area, mountains, rivers and weather.  We have learnt new computing skills, gathered and handled data, explored maps and carried out field work. Examples of the work can be found on the class web pages.
