St Peter's was founded in 1869 and, from September 2017, will welcome children aged 4-8, providing them with the unique opportunity to learn and play in a happy, safe and stimulating environment. We are proud of our school's warm, caring atmosphere, where every child is truly known and valued for who they are and where they develop a genuine love of learning.
With a maximum of 28 children in our Reception, Year One and Year Two classes, we are able to focus upon the needs of each individual child and family. We have high expectations and seek to develop in all our children a strong sense of responsibility for their behaviour and a respect for others. The Christian foundation of our school underpins all that we do.
At St Peter’s each child’s unique talents and personality are embraced and developed. We acknowledge and respect every child’s individuality, we listen to and work with parents and are committed to being integral to the local community. The children are provided with a broad and balanced education enriched by a wide variety of trips and active, hands-on learning opportunities in order to achieve their full potential.
With a Victorian building at its heart, and set in beautiful grounds, our school has modern classrooms with the latest technology and high quality resources. Through continual praise and support, children are carefully nurtured by a highly dedicated team, supported by an enthusiastic and committed Governing Body. The warm-hearted ethos of St Peter's is very special indeed - the children really do flourish and are very well prepared, in the widest possible sense, for their future lives.
We want every child's experience of St Peter’s to be a thoroughly happy, enjoyable and successful one in order that their talents, confidence and self-esteem can be nurtured and fully developed.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school and to working together with you in helping your child to develop intellectually, socially and emotionally during these very special infant years. We hope that you will support the school to achieve our aims by becoming part of the St Peter’s family.
"The impact of these Christian values is shown in the exemplary behaviour of the children and their growing empathy and compassion for others."
