How to Apply

We are a non-selective school and children normally join us in Reception class.  If a place is available, children may also join in any year group at any point in the school year.  Our maximum class size is 20 children. The first thing to do is to visit us, and we welcome visits at any time whilst the school is in session.  Open Weeks are established weeks where the pupil’s work is on display.  At all visits the Headteacher will meet with you to show you the school and answer any questions you may have.  Please call the School Office on 01536 512066 or email STPSOffice@st-peters.org.uk to make an appointment or complete our 'Request a Prospectus' form.

School Information

Founded in 1946, St Peter’s has established a reputation as a warm and friendly school for boys and girls with a strong family atmosphere.  Focused on inclusive, high-quality learning, St Peter’s boasts small class sizes in a beautiful, historic setting.  We are proud of our values-led approach with an emphasis on community.  We seek to educate the whole child and value our vibrant and rich curriculum - the arts, music, and sport.  Academic rigour is important, but so is creativity, children are encouraged to become life-long learners well prepared for secondary school.
