At St Therese of Lisieux we aim to provide the highest quality primary education that will equip our pupils with a life-long love of learning.

The following quote informs our philosophy of teaching and learning at St Therese of Lisieux:

“The more children know you value them, that you consider them extraordinary people, the more willing they will be to listen to you, and afford you the same esteem. And the more appropriate the teaching is, based upon your knowledge of them, the more eager the children will be to learn from you. And the more they learn, the more extraordinary they become. “

M Scott Peck.

At St Therese of Lisieux we implement teaching and learning through a pedagogy of “Assess, Plan, Teach.” This helps to structure all learning sequences; short, medium and long term.
