Belonging, Believing, Building a Future

Headteacher's welcome

Welcome to St Peter's school wesbite.20230827 083659234 iOS

St Peter's was founded in 1869. With a Victorian building at its heart and set in beautiful grounds, around 100 pupils aged  4-11 come here and enjoy the unique opportunity to learn and play in a happy, safe and stimulating environment.  We are proud of our school's warm, caring atmosphere, where every child is truly known and valued for who they are and develop a genuine love of learning.              

 Our pupils are provided with an ambitious,  broad and balanced education enriched by a wide variety of trips and active, hands-on learning opportunities.  Our school has modern classrooms with the latest technology and high quality resources. Through continual praise and support, children are carefully nurtured by a highly dedicated and talented team. They are supported by an enthusiastic and committed Governing Body and an active PTA (FOSPS). We also benefit from close links with the team from St Peter's Church. 

At St Peter’s, each child’s unique talents and personality are embraced and developed in order for them to achieve their full potential.  We acknowledge and respect every child’s individuality. We listen to and work with parents and are committed to being integral to the local community. We have high expectations and seek to develop in all our children a strong sense of responsibility for their behaviour and a respect for others. The Christian foundation of our school underpins all that we do. The warm-hearted ethos of St Peter's is very special indeed - pupils flourish and are very well prepared, in the widest possible sense, for their future lives.     

We look forward to welcoming you to our school and working together with you in helping your child to develop intellectually, socially and emotionally during these very special  years. We hope that you will support the school to achieve our aims by becoming part of the St Peter’s family.

"The impact of these Christian values is shown in the exemplary behaviour of the children and their growing empathy and compassion for others."
