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 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 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 every pupil to excel in every subject area. Our outstanding committed teaching staff plan and delver challenging and engaging lessons to provide every opportunity 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 there are opportunities for everyone to experience learning and enrichment outside of the classroom. Please enjoy the final term of year 6 and we very much look forward to seeing you in September.
