Welcome to St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic High School

Aspire not to have more, but to be more..


St. Joseph’s  is an 11-16 voluntary aided co-educational Roman Catholic Secondary School under the trusteeship of The Diocese of Salford.  We are maintained by the Bolton Local Authority and have 860 students enrolled.  St. Joseph’s was established as a secondary school on 5th November 1963.


We have a long-standing reputation for high academic achievement, being an orderly, caring and welcoming community and provision for an extensive range of extra-curricular and out of hours activities. We hope that you gain an insight into the faith and friendship that is shared on a daily basis in our wonderful school and community.
