Welcome from the Head
St Peter’s is a good school that is on the journey to becoming outstanding.
St Peter's is an established Roman Catholic high school providing excellent pupil care, high quality teaching and strong academic results. We offer our pupils numerous opportunities to fulfil their potential and develop their unique individual talents, through a range of extra-curricular activities such as sports. Indeed, St Peter's regularly achieves sporting success at local, regional and national level.
St Peter's is an inclusive school. We work closely with our partner primary schools to support pupils in the transfer to high school; at St Peter's we give pupils every assistance and encouragement to succeed and to proceed to one of our partner sixth form colleges, Loreto or Xaverian, before they move to university or the world of work.
As Headteacher, it is a privilege to lead such a thriving learning community where staff, governors, pupils and their parents/carers work together towards a common goal: achieving excellence in everything that we do.

We now have a well-established system of immediate (same day) after-school detentions for students who:
• Fail to bring basic equipment/essentials to school (Pen/Planner)
• Arrive late for any lesson (with no legitimate reason) in one day
• Reach Stage 3 on our Behaviour Ladder.
All students are expected to have their planner with them at all times. On entering their lessons, they should take their planner out and place it on the desk and record the title of the lesson and any supplementary information that the teacher may ask them to record.
In 2013 the Department for Education announced important changes regarding the taking of any leave of absence during term time. Please be reminded of the following:
