WELCOME TO ST GEORGE and ST TERESA SCHOOL
I am proud to welcome you to St George and St Teresa Catholic Primary School in Solihull within the Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham. We are a Catholic school who centre ourselves and our work on the teachings of Christ and strive to live our school Mission Statement in all we do.
For 50 years the school has served the families of the parish and local community. The strength of the bond between home, school, parish and the community is one of our keys to successful and lifelong learning.
At St George and St Teresa, we consider our children and families to be our greatest assets, together with our dedicated staff. We strive to ensure that our high expectations, excellent quality of education, care and guidance create in our pupils a thirst for knowledge, an aspiration to succeed and inspiration for their futures.
I hope that in whatever capacity you are reading this you will recognise the strengths, achievement and potential that exists within our school and that you will find the website interesting, informative and useful.
I trust the information on this site answers any questions you may have about the school. Good as our website is it only gives you a brief glimpse of aspects of school life. If you would like further information on any aspect of our work please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Whilst the website is a sound introduction to the school, I recommend that prospective parents visit our school. I would welcome the opportunity to meet you, answer your questions and let you see our school in action. I also welcome suggestions/feedback on items you'd like to have included, or improvements we could make.
