St Joseph’s is a specialised school under the patronage of the voluntary organisation Ability West. We provide educational programmes for pupils with moderate
general learning disabilities and for pupils with autism within this range. Pupils aged 4 to 18 years can be enrolled.
The mission of the school is to provide for the unique academic, physical, social and emotional needs of its pupils. We are committed to creating and maintaining an orderly, trusting, and caring environment where teaching and learning experiences are exciting and pupils are assisted as they develop independence. All aspects of the school, both organisational and curricular are child centred and designed to accommodate individual learning so that all pupils may experience success. Our aim is to enable pupils to achieve their potential allowing them to participate as independently as possible in their personal lives, within their local communities and in society in general. We are a multi denominational school.
