St Joseph's School - A Catholic Voluntary Academy

Friends of St Joseph's 


We are the fundraising team. Whether you are a parent, guardian, grandparent or friend of a child at St Joseph's, you too are a Friend of St Joseph's. Together we can make a difference by raising money for those extras that the school budget may struggle to pay for.

Keep an eye on this page as it will always be up to date with what we are doing, what we have done and how much we have raised after each event.


If you can help out at any event or have any fundraising ideas please contact the school office at any time!

Thank you

LATEST NEWS for 2023/24

We have been raising money over the last two years to create a wonderful all-year-round reading area in front of the school hall. The artificial grass has now been laid and the new colourful recycled, weatherproof seating is being enjoyed by the children.

Our fundraising efforts this year have mainly been towards the lovely, colourful fence around the reading area that has now been erected in addition to other projects in school.

This year, it is our intention to help keep school trips as low as possible by contributing to the transport for each class trip.

In the new school year 2023/24 we have given each class £400 to reduce the cost of class trips so that every child can enjoy new experiences to enhance their learning.
