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

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.
