St. Joseph’s is situated approximately 14 miles from Belfast and serves the Parish of Glenavy and Killead.  The building is not only beautifully designed but also incorporates some of the most modern, up to date facilities available in a school in Northern Ireland.


In St. Joseph’s we aim to promote a caring environment which will enable all children to make the most of their potential for academic, spiritual, physical and emotional development.  The central focus in terms of our ethos is a child-centred approach, whereby all partners involved in the pupils’ learning development have a key role to play.


It is hoped that our website will contribute to us being an accessible and informative school whilst also providing us with the opportunity to share some of the wonderful experiences that go on in St. Joseph’s.  We are very proud of our school and hope you enjoy browsing our website which will give you an insight into life at St. Joseph’s, as well as providing regular updated information for both pupils and parents.


No website can convey the real atmosphere of a school.  Therefore I invite you to visit our school by supporting school events throughout the year.  Also, please feel free to contact the school by phone with any queries you may have. We will do our best to help you.    In the meantime I hope you enjoy our website.  Thank you for visiting!
