Bishop Marcus Visits Our School

On Thursday 24th November we were honoured to welcome Bishop Marcus to school to lead us in prayer and officially open the new EYFS/KS1 outdoor area.

Thank you to those parents and parishioners who attended the event. Those of who couldn’t attend missed a treat. Bishop Marcus was given a tour of the Reception, year one and year two classrooms by our Head Boy, Antonio and our Head Girl Emily.
They were fantastic ambassadors of our school and we are very proud of them.

Bishop Marcus talked and laughed with the children, inviting two of the children
to try on his cap!

Further details can also be found on the Diocese of Leeds website (

We are delighted that Bishop Marcus said he was impressed with the school and also said he could tell St Joseph's was a happy school!
