Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world.
St Peter's School is registered as a charity whose charitable objectives are ‘To establish, maintain, manage, develop and carry a day school for boys and girls’.
St Peter’s School operates a means tested bursary scheme to provide assistance where possible, to benefit families experiencing financial hardship who are wishing to enter/remain at the School.
Links have been made with a nearby state school and multi-academy trust resulting in sharing of resources and expertise. The experience of a show given by a visiting theatre company was shared with pupils at the local state school, and they have also been invited to use the school site for sports events.
The School also supports the local Higher Education College by providing work experience for students, and this practice also benefits students from local secondary schools.
There is annual support of children’s charities, both by the School and its parents. For many years the School and its families have also supported Goodwill Children’s Homes, a charity that provides funding to give long term care and education to destitute children in South India.
Links with the community are well established; pupils donate Harvest produce to senior citizens’ organisations, and visit them at Christmas, providing musical and poetic entertainment.
Links have also been made with the local Church, for example, opening up the School’s grounds for the Church community to enjoy as part of their Open Gardens event. We also opened up our site to St Michael’s Church for use as a temporary place of worship when they needed to be closed for renovation and the local Rainbows group use the School grounds for their annual summer picnic.
