Welcome to St Joseph's School Tenterfield

At St Joseph’s school we have been educating the children of Tenterfield and the surrounding district for over 130 years.

Established in 1880 by the Sisters of St Joseph, St Joseph’s School is a quality primary school with 127 students, located in Tenterfield in the New England Region of NSW. The school has large spacious grounds, excellent new classrooms and a very experienced, committed staff.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make.

St Joseph’s prides itself on the high standard of education using Quality Teaching strategies, where every child is challenged and valued for their unique gifts. The teachers provide a positive and secure learning environment. One of the defining features of the school is the strong relationship between family, school, parish and the wider community.
