The foundation of our school dates back to the first school in Bexhill. This was in what is now the Chantry Chapel in St. Peter’s Church. Founded by Thomas Pye in the 16th century. The last St. Peters School was in Barrack Road and is now called Chantry Primary.
St. Peter and St. Paul School moved to these new buildings in 1956 when St. Peter’s School and St. Barnabas Schools amalgamated.
St Peter and St Paul Church of England Primary school, built in 1956, carries on the tradition of Church Schools in Bexhill on Sea and in general caters for children aged 4 to 11 who live in the five parishes of the town.
We are organised as a two form entry school and single age classes are of mixed ability. Recognising the fact that the needs of the individual children vary, our class organisation reflects the wide variety of circumstances and needs required and provides the stability for purposeful and progressive learning.
We have a team of teaching assistants who work alongside the teachers throughout the school. In addition, there are a number of students who are studying for qualifications at the local sixth form college in “Child Care” type courses such as B. Tech., N.N.E.B., G.N.V.Q., etc who have work experience at St Peter & St Paul.
