St. Mary’s R.C. Primary School

St. Mary's R.C. Primary School is situated in Bulwark,  a residential area of Chepstow. The school was opened in 1969 and has strong links with our Church and Parish. It's mission is to promote Christian values in every aspect of the school. The School has strong links with the local community and has a very active and successful PTAThe school draws Catholic children from the Catholic Parish of Chepstow, Caldicot and Magor as well as from other families who wish their children to have a Christian education. Currently there are 190 children on roll that are taught in seven single age classes. The School admits children from 4 to 11 years of age.

The school's priorities include providing children with a balanced curriculum and the opportunity to develop their academic abilities. The school seeks to recognise the uniqueness of each child and to nurture their feelings of self-worth. Teachers know the children are well cared for and have established a caring atmosphere where all pupils feel valued and safe.
The school is continuing to strengthen the relationship between home, school and parish. The school aims for its children to be well-motivated individuals supporting the society in which they live.

St. Joseph's R.C. High School

St Joseph’s RC High School places great emphasis on the whole development of every child. This development is firmly based on Gospel values. Every child is valued as a unique individual, precious to God. The curriculum is wide and provides opportunities for your child to make the most of his or her God-given abilities. We do our best to ensure that every one of our children, whatever their strengths or weaknesses, feels cared for and challenged.


 
 
The school aims to make learning and teaching as interesting as possible. Our pupils are given strategies to enable them to become more effective learners. We want our pupils to develop a love of learning and become life long learners. The range of extra-curricular opportunities in sport, drama and music, enables everyone to develop their interests and talents. We are justly proud of our School’s academic record and every year large numbers of our students enter universities to take degree courses. A very large proportion of our pupils at the end of their fifth year return to the sixth form.

In succession to our late Headteacher Miss Sue Jenkins, the Governors of St Joseph's RC High School are pleased to announce, that following a rigorous interview process, we have appointed Mr. Trevor Brown (Currently Deputy Headteacher and Acting Headteacher) as the new Headteacher of our school.

We congratulate Mr. Brown on his appointment and are confident he will continue to improve the excellent standards that have been achieved by students and staff of St Joseph’s RC High School.
