St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

Great Hadham Road, Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire CM23 2NL

Class Organisation

We are a 1.5 form of entry primary school with a published admissions number of 45 pupils.

Therefore from Nursery through to Year 6 there are a maximum of 45 pupils in each year group.  As 45 pupils are too many for one class, we, like many other primary schools, organise the pupils into 12 classes with mixed aged classes in Key Stage 1 and 2.

The class structure is as follows:

Foundation Stage    
Nursery (Morning) 22/23 pupils rising 4 year olds

Ash 22/23 pupis rising 5 year olds
