It is a pleasure to have this opportunity to introduce you to St Peter's Junior School.Our school educates boys and girls between 7 and 11 years of age and includes a Specialist Learning Centre.
The school enjoys a prime town centre site yet has a very large playground with several special activity and quiet areas. Our classrooms are spacious, bright and attractive and in addition our facilities include a modern ICT suite; and recently equipped dance and drama studio.
St Peter's is a warm and welcoming school, very concerned with the welfare and pastoral care of its pupils. The staff endeavour to bring out the best in each child and have high expectations of achievement and behaviour. The staff support a wide range of extra-curricular activities which range from netball and Kwik Cricket to recorder playing and art clubs.
The partnership between pupils, parents, staff and governors is ever-strengthening and we applaud the active role which many parents play in the life of our school.
We welcome your interest in our school and warmly invite you to ring the office to arrange your visit for a tour around our facilities.

Our catchment area is the town of Marlborough extending west as far as the public library, includes the village of Mildenhall to the east and various other small hamlets within a radius of a few miles.
Most of our Year 3 children come to us from St. Mary’s Infant School and Year 6 children generally move on to St. John’s School and Community College. We have active links with both of these schools to ensure a smooth transition for children as they move through the education system in Marlborough. The school also has links with other primary schools in the St. John’s catchment area.
Children transferring from St Mary’s will have a visit to St. Peter’s Junior School, as well as a meeting for parents, before they join us and all relevant information will be made available to you. If you are thinking of joining St. Peter’s from another school, please get in touch with the school office and we will be pleased to answer your questions and arrange a visit for you and your child to view the school. Transfer to secondary takes place at the end of the school year and arrangements are made for children to visit their future secondary school prior to transfer. All necessary information is made available to you early in the summer term.
The Governors have adopted the LEA policy on admissions. A copy of ‘A Guide to School Admissions in Wiltshire' can be viewed in the school office or in any Wiltshire Public Library.
The prospectus is the document we give to all new parents. It outlines all the important information you will need to have about the day to day running of our school. For example: school uniform, dinners, session times and field trips.
