Here at St Joseph's we are very fortunate to have extensive school grounds. Where possible, a lot of our learning takes place out doors using the different facilities around the grounds.
Getting to School?
We encourage children to walk to school. There is a school crossing patrol opposite Bournes Row on Gregson Lane.
The car park at school is not to be used by parents unless dropping off or picking up from GLAD. Bournes Row is a very busy road and we therefore suggest parking at the Black Horse pub and walking down to school. However, if you opt to park on Bournes Row, we ask for you to be considerate to the local neighbours and to not park across driveways etc.
