Introduction from Mr Shelton, Headteacher of St Peter’s

Welcome to St Peter’s Catholic School, we are very much looking forward to welcoming you as our new Year 7 in September. Whether this is your first experience of St Peter’s, or you have siblings, other family members or your own parents attended as a pupil, you are joining a very special community. We are all extremely proud of our school and support each other to use our God given talents for the good of our school community. Faith is our Foundation and is an important aspect of our mission and vision. Our Catholic Pupil Profile permeates through everything we do and during form time activities and assemblies, we explore and develop this important aspect of school life.

We have an exciting, ambitious curriculum that enables all pupils to excel in every subject area. Our outstanding committed teaching staff plan and deliver challenging and engaging lessons to provide every opportunity for pupils to achieve the very best grades possible. Outside of the classroom there is a large amount of extra-curricular activities, from Sport, Music, Drama, Science and DT. Please enjoy the final term of year 6 and we very much look forward to seeing you in September.
