St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

St Teresa's Catholic Primary School is situated on the southern edge of the City of Stoke-on-Trent. The school was founded in 1938 to serve the large number of Catholic families that were moving into the Parish of St Teresa of the Child Jesus. The provision of both church and school were aided by the French company Michelin who had established a factory locally.

The school draws pupils mainly from the Trent Vale, Oakhill, Hanford, Blurton and Trentham districts of Stoke-on-Trent. Other pupils come from villages and towns in North Staffordshire. The school is growing but is still regularly oversubscribed. In September 2005 there will be some 350 pupils including a 45 place Nursey.

St Teresa's enjoys a high degree of success. Benchmark judgements are almost always in the A*, A and B range. The school provides the widest possible curriculum reflected in the the facts that some fifty children play a musical instrument, that there are two choirs and that teams participate in a variety of sports.

The school is a Beacon Partnership Lead School which means that staff from the school are involved in the dissemination of good practice to other schools.

St Teresa's is also part of a Network Learning Community.

We are fortunate to be part of the Education and Lifelong Learning Department of the City of Stoke on Trent. Stoke is a small Education Authority and this is a great strength as all support one another in the commitment to raise standards for all the City's children.

The City of Stoke on Trent is a good place to work and to live.
