WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL!!!
St Peter’s has a long and successful history of educating girls and boys, currently from the ages of 3 to 13, both day and boarding. We recognise that every child is unique and is inspired to learn in a different way. By offering a broad and challenging curriculum and a full programme of activities, each child is given the opportunity to develop to their full potential. To achieve this goal, the staff and I are committed to building strong partnerships with parents right from the start – with all of us sharing the same ethos, an essential part of any school’s success.
Small class sizes ensure that the academic and pastoral needs of each child are met. As children progress through the school they are encouraged to learn and work independently. However, they can only achieve this once they have been given the tools and the self-belief. In a Christian community, where all relationships are based upon respect, your child will learn to appreciate the need to be courteous, considerate and use their common sense (our three Cs). This helps build the foundation for a happy and balanced life.
From the ages of 3-8 children are class taught by primary specialists, with additional expertise offered in Music, French, PE and Games. At age 8 (Year 4), this is broadened to include Science and Design Technology. Subject specialists teach all children from Year 5 onwards. Drama and Music give scope for children of all ages to perform. They learn to combine their talents as a team, whether as actors, singers, musicians or technicians.
With a staff that offers expertise in a wide range of activities, our physical education and sports programme has an exciting mix to offer each child regardless of their ability. We believe that pupils should experience as many sports as possible and learn to appreciate the necessity to be sporting as well as competitive. We value participation, team spirit and a will to win.
With a small number of boarders, it is easy to recreate a very homely- feel, in a safe environment which allows freedom and the opportunity to take on responsibility. The children have very much appreciated the sense of fun and belonging. They have also been able to cement friendships made during the school hours. A wide variety of activities are offered each term from indoor games, cookery, horse-riding to visits to the cinema, theatre, the local beach (summer term) and bingo/karaoke nights. However, children are also encouraged to relax and switch off, sometimes on their own, at the end of what is usually an action-packed school day.
The dormitories are brightly furnished, all of them are themed, and children are encouraged to bring in photos and other reminders of home. We currently have an impressive collection of teddy bears!
