Open Days / Tours of the School
During the Autumn Term we would usually be holding open days for prospective families to visit our school. Unfortunately due to the pandemic we are required to limit visitors to the school as far as possible, therefore we cannot host open days / tours.
We have therefore created a virtual tour of our school for you to watch.
If you have any questions regarding our school, please click on the question marks below which will take you to our 'Questions' form.
We will add responses to any questions we received on our FAQ page.
Applying for a School place
Applying to St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School?
Please read the following very carefully.
Your application must include the following (where applicable);
1. A copy of the child’s Birth Certificate.
2. A copy of the child’s Baptismal Certificate (if the child has been Baptised).

Although we usually require the original certificate of Catholic practice, we are making an exception during the pandemic to allow parents to email their documentation directly to the school.
If you require a certificate of catholic practice from St Teresa's Church for your child to start school in September 2021, please send a request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org

For clarity, these four pieces of information must be supplied directly to the school.

You are reminded that an incomplete application may alter its classification within the school’s published admission criteria.
