St. Peter's RC Primary School, Aberdeen
St Peter's RC Primary School is a Catholic primary school for pupils between the ages of 5 and 12. We serve the parishes of St Peter's, St Joseph's and St Columba's. Other Christians, Jews and many Muslim families choose to send their children to St Peter's. We also have children from families who have no religious belief. We enjoy a rich diversity in religious, social and ethnic mix.
- We affirm the religious and cultural identities of all and strive to create a caring community where everyone is valued.
- We aim to create a secure environment in which Gospel values of trust, respect, tolerance, honesty and forgiveness are seen in everything that is attempted.
- We strive to foster the individual spiritual, educational, social and personal development of all our children by providing a broad and balanced curriculum.
We have been happily settled in our current premises since 1983. The main building of our school houses :
- four classrooms
