Welcome to St Joseph's Preparatory School, the leading Independent School in Staffordshire

St Joseph's Preparatory School is one of the leading private Independent Roman Catholic co-educational schools in North Staffordshire, welcoming pupils of all faiths aged between 3-11 years.

The school is built on the tradition of our founders, The Congregation of Christian Brothers, and the ethos of the school reflects their challenge to seek and live out the gospel values in the competitive climate of today's educational world.

Located in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, St Joseph's Preparatory School has a fine tradition of service to the local community and fosters within its pupils, a balanced and caring perspective on life. The School holds an excellent Scholastic record and a deserved musical and sporting tradition.  The School seeks to develop the whole child and to nurture their individual talents. 

We aim to provide a stimulating but relaxed environment where our pupils are motivated to enjoy their work. We believe they should be free to develop as individuals and to this end we endeavour to help them discover their own talents and thus fulfil their potential.

Confidence, reliability and self-discipline are all of prime importance. We encourage a relaxed Christian family atmosphere of caring and sharing in order to assist each pupil's spiritual and emotional growth. The school aims to provide a caring Christian community with an ethos which brings the Gospel message alive, a place in which individuals can develop fully, contributing as happy and caring members of a school community which values their unique talents, whilst learning to live as well-mannered, self-disciplined and confident individuals.It is this ethos that sets us apart as one of the leading independent schools in Staffordshire. 

These aims are encapsulated in our school mission statement.
