Caring School

Feeder School for Carmel and Rosmini

St Leos is one of the five feeder schools for Carmel and Rosmini college - two of the best secondary schools on the North Shore.

High Academic Achievement

We have a tradition of excellence and our results speak for themselves. We set high goals for achievement and believe that all our children can achieve at or above Curriculum levels.

Modern Technology

Every class at St Leo’s has a TV linked to the teachers laptop for presentations. Computers are in every class and all children have regular access to a range of technology to enhance their learning.

Small Class Sizes

We have small class sizes so our children get more one-to-one teacher time.

Strong School Community

We have a close school community family who like to get together to support their children – and have a bit of fun!

Highly qualified and dedicated staff

Our wonderful staff share a commitment to learning and innovative teaching practices to bring out the very best in our children.

Sporting Success

Our children have access to a wide variety of sports at St Leo’s – and punch well above their weight!

Christian Values

We seek to instill the enduring values of the Mercy tradition in all our children – Justice, Service, Respect for Human Dignity, Compassion and Care of the Poor and Vulnerable.


We are the only school in Devonport with a school uniform. Children are taught to have respect for their uniform which we believe gives them a sense of pride and dignity.

Specialist Learning Opportunities

Our learners explore their creativity through our unique Art and STEM programme with specialist teachers in dedicated classrooms.

Before and After School Care

The teachers provide before school care from 7.30am to 8.30am from $6 per day. Breakfast can be booked. After school care is run by Ruth Christy from Marbles.
