St. Peter's College

St. Peter's College is a unique school located in Chelmsford. We are a Church of England school which means we establish the best possible standards of care and support for all our students. It also means we aim for the best in everything because only the best is good enough for our students.

We are also a specialist Arts College and were given renewed government approval for our specialist work in 2007. Students who are successful at audition can join our acclaimed "Enhanced Arts Programme" which provides FREE specialist tuition.

Highlights of 2006-7 included our positive Ofsted report in March and our redesignation as a Specialist Arts College in July. The most pleasing achievement was the success of our students in their examinations at GCSE, in the Sixth Form and in the Key Stage 3 tests.

We are looking forward to another successful year ahead.

St. Peter’s College is committed to providing the best of education tailored to the abilities, interests and needs of each individual.  We want to encourage our students to be healthy, happy and secure learners who enjoy success.  We also want to help our students to develop as responsible, caring young adults who play a positive part in their school and community and who are well prepared to take their place as young adults in society.

As a Church of England School since 2003, we have been building gradually on our Christian foundations.  There is no pressure or expectation for anyone to share those beliefs, but they help us to focus on the important job of creating a remarkable school which aims to provide the highest standards of care, support, teaching and learning for everyone. We see everyone as deserving nothing less.

Increasingly we base our school life on the values that come from our Christian foundations.  These include honesty, care and respect for all people both inside and outside the school.  We encourage young people to respect the part that faith plays in many people’s lives and to think for themselves about what they believe. 



The school occupies three buildings grouped together in a spacious and attractive site with extensive playing fields and hard playing areas.  Upgrading and refurbishment of most accommodation has been undertaken in the last 18 months.  The standard of classrooms is high and they are well resourced.  Most classrooms have interactive whiteboards and all have access to the internet through the school’s wireless network.

The Performing Arts facilities are outstanding.  These include a fully equipped working theatre, two specialist drama studios, a dance studio with mirrored wall, two music rooms and a recording studio.

The school has extensive computer facilities and there is good access to these for students in all areas.  A new Learning Resources Centre was opened in January 2007 and this provides a superb library with study facilities for students.  This may be booked by teachers for classes to use together or students may use the facilities during breaks and lunchtimes and out of school hours.

The school has two gyms, several specialist Science laboratories and technology rooms. 

The school constantly seeks to upgrade and improve the accommodation and resources that student use.  Further investment is being made at the time of writing this prospectus which will result in more interactive technology in school to make learning at St. Peter’s College even more exciting and stimulating.



With the exception of Sixth Form students (Years 12 and 13) all students have 25 hours of lessons each week.  We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which gives each individual the opportunity to succeed at the highest level of which they are capable.

In Years 7, 8 and 9 students study the Key Stage 3 curriculum. The school's specialist subjects include Performing Arts, Art and English. Every student will study these along with all the other national curriculum subjects. For further information about Key Stage 3 click here.

In Years 10 and 11, students study Key Stage 4 which for most of them will mean taking GCSE examinations at the end of Year 11. For a minority of students there are other qualifications which meet their needs better and this can include studying at college and gaining experience and skills in the work place. For more information about Key Stage 4 click here.

The Sixth Form at St. Peter's College offers A Levels, the highly successful CACHE (Childcare and Education) course and the BTEC Sports Studies course. The range of subjects is wide and pass rates are high and are rising even higher. For more information about the Sixth Form click here.




Extra-curricular activities and clubs are an important part of life at St. Peter’s College.  There are lots of activities to choose from.  These can include:



Including football (boys and girls), rugby, netball, cricket, volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, athletics

Performing Arts
