Faith is Our Foundation

Mission Statement

“At St. Peter’s we are ambassadors for justice and peace throughout our school community and beyond. We believe that all our students are treated equally with respect. Forgiveness is at the centre of our school because we are a community that teaches faith and love. We all endeavour, in this Catholic Christian community encompassing other faiths, to work together for the common good so that we can all live, learn and love in peace and harmony. We strive to be valuable members of our local and global community. We want our students to leave St. Peter’s with a good education, valuable life skills and a grounding in Gospel values in order to give them the ability to carry on this mission in their adult life.”

The Catholic Life of the School this academic year will be structured by the Jesuit Pupil Profile. We will focus on a different pair of gospel values each half term, matched with events in our whole school calendar. All that we do at St Peter’s is viewed by staff and students and parents through the lens of our faith and these gospel values are integral to our daily life and work here.

In this Year of Vocations, special attention will be paid to hearing and responding to what God calls us each of us to be in his model of servant leadership.
