Guiding, Inspiring, Achieving

'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me' Philippians 4:13


At St. Stephen's we want our pupils to develop enthusiasm and motivation for life and for learning; taking pride in success and achievement. We want our pupils to embrace the future with hope, faith, confidence and compassion.
