Dear Parents,

I am delighted to have this opportunity to welcome you to St. Joseph's RC Middle School on behalf of the governing body.

We are very proud of our school and of the hard work and achievements of the staff, parents and pupils.

I hope that you will appreciate the dedication and professionalism within the school when you visit us.

Although proud of this school, we are far from complacent. We are always striving to achieve the best possible results and resources for all the children in our care.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of the work of the governing body, please contact me via the school.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Howard Forrest

Chair of Governors
