St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

Live, Love, Learn, Grow

College Road, Skelmersdale, Lancashire WN8 0PY



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. 

Mrs. C.M. Rigby

Thank you

Please may I take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support and good wishes over the last academic year. It is a sacred privilege and a great honour to serve the children and families of St Teresa’s School as Headteacher. I am very proud of our children, staff and all our achievements during this busy and vibrant year and I look forward to more exciting opportunities and a fun-filled year in September.

I wish you all a very happy, sunny and relaxing summer holiday and I look forward to welcoming you all back in September to your new classes.

Year Six Leaver’s Party

Thank you to the PTFA and all the parent volunteers who ensured our Leaver’s Party was a great success. The evening is a very special occasion in our school calendar and we are very grateful to everyone who ensures that it is such a special occasion for Year Six and their families.

Education Sunday

On Sunday 11th September we will be celebrating Education Sunday with our parish community at the 10 o’clock Sunday Mass. This celebration has been moved to mark the beginning of the new school year and allows us the opportunity to forge strong bonds from the start of the academic year by inviting all the people involved in the life of our school to a special mass, to celebrate their contribution to the life of our school and the Church. All parents/carers, children, staff and governors are invited to attend.
