St Teresa's Catholic Primary School


Clairmont Road, Colchester, Essex, CO3 9BE


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 hope to be able to record a virtual tour of the school which will be uploaded to this page in due course.
