It is with great pleasure that we extend a very warm welcome to St Teresa's, and our School Website.

We are a Catholic Primary School and as such we believe that the ethos of our school must, in all aspects, reflect the teachings of Christ in the Gospels. Indeed, Our aim is to provide a high quality Christian Education based upon the teachings of Christ in the Gospels, where each individual can live life to the full; love like Jesus, learn from every opportunity and grow together in faith.

We hope that you enjoy looking through our website and sharing many of the special events and moments that take place in our school.  Should you require any further information, or you would like to visit our school then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Hope Journey for Year 2

Thank you to Mrs Hampson, Mrs Engelen, Mrs Gaskell and all the staff and volunteers who supported our Year Two children on the Hope Journey this week.  The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in a variety of Christmas workshops where they were able to talk to and question Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds and Kings.

Christingle Service

On the last day of term, Friday 21st December from 9.05am until 9.45am we invite parents/carers or grandparents to join our children in making a ‘Christingle’.  All the children will make their own Christingle and learn about the significance of each part.  In the afternoon, at 2pm, all classes will attend a Christingle Service in church.  All parents/carers or grandparents are invited to attend.  Following the service everyone is invited, whilst the children prepare for home,  to enjoy seasonal refreshments in the school hall.
