About Us

St Stephens School, on the north side of Launceston, moved to its present site in 1977.Since then there have been many changes and adaptations to our seventies building to adapt it to provide 21st century education.

We have a modern and well appointed computer suite that can accommodate a class at a time. Every class has an interactive whiteboard which is used regularly to inspire our pupils. Our hall has an interactive media centre installed.

The Area Resource Base (ARB) is very well equipped with a wide range of resources including a fabulous Sensory Room. The ARB has a very close relationship with the local community who organise many fundraising events to support it.

St Stephens Pre School occupies a classroom on our site. It has recently become part of the school and we work very closely together to ensure that there is smooth transition for pupils to the school.

We have a close relationship with our community including the Church of St Stephen the Martyr where every year we hold our Carol Concert. We use many other features of the local area including Launceston Castle and the Priory ruins as part of our learning experiences for children.

We also have the local Children's Centre on site. This is a wonderful facility for the parents on the North side of Launceston and should mean that there is a wider range of services available and that they are more locally accessible.

The school has been awarded Investors in People status. It is a Healthy School and has awarded the Active Mark and the Gold Schools Sports Mark (in July 2017) in recognition of the amount of high quality physical education that is provided to pupils. In July 2016 the school achieved the UNICEF Recognition Award. 

Listed below are some of the school's key information and statutory documents.
