St Joseph and St Teresa

Catholic Primary School



Welcome to St Joseph and St Teresa Catholic Primary School



A Warm Welcome!


I’m delighted to welcome you to St Joseph and St Teresa Catholic Primary School.


At our school we combine purposeful learning with fun and creativity, where pupils are given opportunities to work together collaboratively and as individuals. Pupils are expected to give of their best at all times in their learning, behaviour and respect for others.


We are proud of our creative curriculum and our high levels of academic achievement. Through a wide variety of opportunities, we aim for every child to reach his or her full potential and leave us as confident and caring individuals.


Our School is dedicated to St Joseph and to St Teresa of Avila and works closely with the parish church, situated just across the road from us. However, we don’t simply offer an education to Catholic children, but a Catholic education, welcoming children of all faiths and beliefs who are ready to embrace our values.


If you are interested in your child joining us, then please call us on 01749 678791 in order to arrange a time to visit.
