Duddon St. Peter's School is a small primary school, nestling in the Cheshire countryside. We have a happy and caring environment where children are given a warm welcome. Our hope is that each child in the school will have an opportunity to realise his or her full potential.
The school was founded in 1875 by the Church of England. We value the long tradition of providing education here and work from a Christian base which is reflected in all that we do. Close ties exist between the school, St. Peter's Church and the local community.
Our aim is to create a caring and loving environment where children quickly settle and can achieve their best in all that they do. The staff work closely together and know all our pupils, contributing to the development of the school by working together in a partnership with parents.
