We are extremely proud of our school. We aim to provide a happy, safe and secure environment where learning is enjoyable and teaching is shaped by the needs and interests of our pupils. If you require any more information, please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
At Joseph Norton we believe that every child deserves the best possible education to enable them to make good progress and achieve their full potential.
As a team we want every child to leave us having developed a love of learning and the skills and self confidence needed to help them succeed in further education, training, employment and post-school life.
We aim to build partnerships with parents, carers and children that are based on honesty, trust and mutual respect with the purpose of supporting the academic, vocational, personal and emotional development of our pupils.
Nestled between the villages of Scissett and Skelmanthorpe, our school is set in approximately six acres of attractive grounds.
Beautiful in winter and summer alike, we value our rural location and enjoy the 'great outdoors' whenever we are able. For visitors, our school is easily accessible from Huddersfield, Wakefield, Leeds and Barnsley, with good rail and road links, including easy access to the M1, A1(M) and M62.
