Principal's Welcome

Dear Parent/Guardian

As the proud Principal of St Joseph's Boys' School Derry​; I would like to introduce you to the great work that happens here every day and the support of a skilled and professional staff who are dedicated and committed to all our pupils. St Joseph's Boys' School has many strengths and enormous potential to encourage, nurture and achieve only the best for all our pupils. I am pleased to report that the results this year have been our highest to date and my expectations of the boys in the school in terms of their achievement, motivation, attitude and behaviour are very high. I expect all of our pupils to uphold core values of respect, courtesy and cooperation and to do their best in all that they want to achieve both in and out of the classroom.

The relationships between our pupils, staff, parents/guardians and parish community is essential to the success of each individual pupil and St Joseph's Boys. Working together will ensure that each pupil will make outstanding progress and leave us as responsible, well - qualified, resilient young people ready for the next stage of their career.

St Joseph’s asks all our parents for their continuing support and from the new parents/guardians of year 8 pupils joining us this year.  We ask that you ensure that each pupil wears our St Joseph's uniform with pride, aims to have full attendance, is punctual and arrives every day prepared for learning.

Your contribution as parents/guardians cannot be underestimated, so together we can ensure that our School motto 'Achievement for All' is a reality for each pupil.

I look forward to working with you in partnership as your son progresses through the School.

Yours Faithfully

Martina McCarron
