September 2020 - New Classes

As a school, we feel it is important that children get to know their teaching staff for the new academic year. Therefore, each class have prepared a short video to assist your child with a smooth transition into school.

We hope you have a lovely summer, and that you and your family stay safe and healthy.

All staff at St Gerard’s look forward to welcoming you to school in September.
