Welcome to St Teresa's RC Primary School. We are a Voluntary Aided Primary school for 3-11 year olds based in Stretford, Manchester. 

Our school mission statement is:

'Loving To Learn, Learning To Love'

We think this encapsulates the education the children receive at our school.  We hope your child will become an enthusiastic and lifelong learner.  Our principle value of Christ centred love underpins everything that goes on in our school and we hope this helps our children to become happy, confident learners who feel loved and valued.


Our school prayer is said everyday by all members of our school community.  It too highlights too the  mission  of our family school community "our little gem " where we strive to live a life of love sharing the Good News.


This is our school,

​Let peace dwell here.

Let the rooms be full of contentment.

Let love abide here.

Love of one another,

love of learning,

love of life itself,

and love of God.

Let us remember that as many hands build a house,

so many hearts make our school.
