St Joseph’s celebrates outstanding performance

Lancashire’s schools' performance tables have recently been published and St Joseph's RC Primary School’s attainment in the 2018 SATs was the highest in the county. The school also achieved the seventh place in the Sunday Telegraph’s best 100 schools based on last summer’s results.

Congratulations have been offered to all the staff on this fantastic achievement. The school expresses its gratitude to all the parents at St Joseph's for their continuing support. Most importantly, the school would like to offer a huge thank you to the children who worked so hard to achieve such remarkable results and have made everyone at St Joseph’s so very proud.

Andrew W. Snape, Chair of Governors, said: "St Joseph's is justifiably proud of its performance in last year's SATs and in its place in the Sunday Telegraph's list of 100 best schools. As a Jesuit school we set high standards and strive for excellence in all that we do. This year the children, helped and encouraged by a very talented and supportive staff have demonstrated resoundingly why St. Joseph's is so popular with both parents and pupils alike. A huge thank you to everyone involved in achieving these results."

"This is an outstanding result for such a small school,” commented Fr Tim Curtis SJ, parish priest and chaplain to the school. “St Joseph's primary has a 325-year history of providing excellent education to the children of Hurst Green village, but these results are outstanding, even by St Joseph's own standards. Well done to all concerned."
