Our Primary Schools

“St. Mary’s Menston is part of a Catholic family of schools, The Bishop Wheeler Catholic Academy Trust. We have five main feeder schools: St. Joseph’s Pudsey, St. Joseph’s Otley, Sacred Heart Ilkley, St. Mary’s Horsforth and SS Peter and Paul Yeadon. We work very closely with each other offering a Catholic education from 4 to 18. By working together we feel that we can serve our students with a consistent message and values.”

St. Joseph’s, Pudsey

Headteacher: Miss C Gardner
Many of our visitors remark about the friendly atmosphere, which we feel is an important element of our school. We aim to create a caring, comfortable environment, with Christ at the centre of all we do, and where children and adults feel at ease; this helps us in our overall purpose of helping every child achieve full potential by developing a partnership between home, school and parish. We hope and expect parents to play their part in developing these links and we want your child and you to feel a sense of belonging.

St. Joseph’s is a Catholic School whose warmth and welcome is recognised by all who visit. It has an idyllic setting next to the River Wharfe with ‘The Chevin’ as a backdrop and close to open countryside, whilst still enjoying the convenience and community of a small market town.
