Private School and preschool in Wellingborough

Just a short drive from Wellingborough, your child is invited to experience a one-of-a-kind, tailored education at St Peter’s School. Our school is a small, independent preparatory day school and preschool, established in 1946, offering a co-educational learning environment for boys and girls from 3 to 11 years of age.

Our commitment to a high-quality education for your child is at the forefront of our values-driven approach; with small class sizes, we prioritise each child’s overall development with a balance of traditional and modern teaching approaches, fostering an interactive and effective learning atmosphere. We are proud of our commitment to social responsibility, as evident by our gold standard award from the Woodland Trust.


Under the guidance of our knowledgeable staff, children are given the tools to cultivate positive behaviours and social skills like good manners, cooperation, friendship-building, and independence. Your child will learn through play with activities including painting, building, role play and singing. At lunchtime they will enjoy healthy and delicious meals cooked lovingly by our chef.
