This site is devoted to St Joseph’s school, Basingstoke. St Joseph’s was located in Norn Hill from 1953 until 1973. The school changed its name to St Bernard’s in September 1964.

I try to cover most aspects of the school including its history, factual information about the teachers, pupils and staff, the School Song and so on.

The only thing I want to steer clear of are negative comment about teachers etc. There are plenty of places on the internet to vent your anger of your unhappy school days but this isn’t one of them. 🙂

Most areas of the site have a comments section. Please use them if you have anything to say. I used to refer people to www.friendsreunited.co.uk for more in depth conversations but sadly it has closed down. www.friendsreunited.co.uk It had over 55 ex pupils registered at last count.

I made a copy of most of the profiles of people on there before it closed and a few of the conversations. Let me know if you want to see it.


As we all know the school is no more. Here is a map of the area where you can sadly gaze and dream of what used to be.
