Welcome to St Joseph’s Camberwell Catholic Schools’ Federation (Infants and Junior School). We are pleased that you are making enquiries about sending your child to St Joseph’s Camberwell.

St Joseph's is a Voluntary Aided Catholic School. Each school has a two-form entry with 60 children in each year group. The classes are un-streamed. Admission to the school is normally restricted to baptised Catholic children who have one or two parents who are committed, practising members of the Catholic Church. If insufficient applicants are received in respect of baptised Catholic children, the Governing Body will admit practising Christians from other denominations. Children will be admitted to the infants school at the beginning of the autumn term following their fourth birthday. Children will be admitted without reference to ability, or aptitude. Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, places will be offered in accordance with the following criteria, in the order set out here in our Admissions Policy.
