Principal's Welcome

Dear Parents, Carers and P7 Pupils, 


As you prepare to make one of the most important decisions for your child’s education, may I take the opportunity to thank you for your interest in our school.  St Joseph’s is a Catholic, co-educational, voluntary grammar school founded in 1922 with a proud history of serving many generations of young people from right across Mid-Ulster.  

Since 2010, our Irish Medium Stream has been a beacon of excellence for the promotion of the Irish language and we continue to play a key role in handing on the richness of our language and culture to the next generation.

Our Catholic ethos is the cornerstone of all that we do and is inclusive of everyone, irrespective of their faith. We are proud of our reputation for providing excellent pastoral support for each child and we take great delight in accompanying our young people as they develop throughout their seven years with us.  We are renowned for the warm and welcoming environment we offer that provides the very best setting for young people to grow and learn together.   


We deliver a wide range of courses and qualifications to meet the needs and interests of all learners and our public exam results are outstanding.  Likewise, our extra-curricular offer is designed to develop the talents and interests of all our pupils and ensures that they have opportunities to travel and develop new interests and past times  


We believe in working in partnership with parents and guardians so that each child fulfils their potential and is able to take their place in the world as a confident, well-rounded individual.  Our careers service is attuned to the particular ambitions of our young people and we are always delighted to follow the careers and successes of our past pupils wherever in the world they choose to study and work. 


We are looking forward to the next multimillion-pound investment in the school infrastructure which will begin soon and will ensure your child enjoys the best facilities for learning over the course of their time at St Joseph's/Scoil Iósaef. 


Yours sincerely
