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.
Mr S Gabriel
The Year 7 boys and girls athletics teams have carried on the tradition of being successful in Indoor Athletics winning the Manchester Schools and Greater Manchester Schools Indoor Athletics Championships.
There were some excellent individual performances and they should all be very proud of their achievements.
In January, 50 Year 10 students enjoyed an outing to the Lowry Theatre at Salford Quays to watch a performance of J.B. Priestley’s influential play ‘An Inspector Calls’.
The play – a critique of early 20th Century capitalist Britain – forms an integral part of the students’ English Literature GCSE, and the trip gave them the opportunity to develop their understanding of the characters, as well as the messages Priestley was trying to make.
During Advent staff and students collected for Cornerstone, Manchester; a day centre run by the Diocese of Salford, providing services to vulnerable and disadvantaged adults.
If you were out in the community last Friday you may have seen a group of Year 7 students completing their Level 3 Bikeability course. The students built on existing skills learned at primary school and focused on cycling on multi-lane roads and using complex junctions safely.
Since November 2019 we have been taking part in Debate Mate, a national organisation which aims to increase speaking and listening attainment and improve higher-order thinking skills as well as confidence, teamwork and leadership.
