Welcome from the Head Teacher
As the Head teacher I would like to welcome you to St Peter's School and our work to further develop our superb reputation for the care students receive. Though the welfare of our young people is paramount I want all of our students to achieve their potential, becoming successful adults within the local community and the world beyond. Learning is at the heart of the school with all students deserving the best teaching. We will achieve success by:
- Believing all students should achieve their potential
- Relentlessly driving up the standard of teaching
- Setting the highest expectations for our students and staff
- Developing students moral responsibility based upon respect for all, integrity and understanding
- Engaging with our community on a local, national and global level
I believe that our students should develop into successful members of the local community or progress onto the best universities. Through guiding students to take advantage of the opportunities they are given, be it academic, drama, art or community activities, they will become well rounded young people who will join, develop and lead our community in the future.
Over 90% of our Year 10 parents during the February 2016 parents evening positively responded to such questions as:
- My child makes good progress
- My child is well taught
- St Peter’s School responds well to any concerns I raise
- I would recommend St Peter’s School to other parents
This level of response demonstrates our commitment to work with parents to ensure our young people thrive in a safe environment.
If you require further information about St Peter’s please do not hesitate to contact us.
At St Peter's School every child does matter
It is our strong belief that as educators we can and must make a difference to the lives of the young people in our care. We work to ensure that the School enables its students to maximise their potential whatever their ability, background, culture, belief or disability.
We have high expectations and aspirations for all our students and we work to prepare them fully for the future beyond our school, recognising, nurturing and celebrating individual skills and talents. We provide a happy, caring, stable and orderly environment in which the highest quality of teaching, learning and development can take place.
We have a responsibility to develop confident, competent citizens of the 21st century in a totally inclusive environment. We develop skills to enable young people to make choices about their future.
We maintain a working partnership of co-operation between students, parents, staff, Governors and the wider community. At St Peter's both teaching and non-teaching staff work as a team to ensure that students are the priority and we aim to make every experience one of quality and wherever possible exciting and challenging.
