St Peter’s 13-18 is an HMC day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 13-18, and the senior section of St Peter’s School, York.
At St Peter’s 13-18 you will find increasing areas of opportunity whether in the classroom, through academic extension or in the co-curricular programme. We want you to open up new avenues and the sheer breadth of activity means that we operate on a full six day schedule - any less and there wouldn’t be time for all we do.
With our boarding community being ever-present, this is a school where being busy, happy and active is a way of life. The years you spend from the age of 13 to 18 are amongst the most exciting and rewarding of your time at school. It is a wonderful age when you start to develop particular interests and specialisms before stepping over the threshold into adult life and all that lies ahead.
It is a great time for developing your sense of personal responsibility and taking on leadership alongside working in teams. It can also be a challenging time and support is here for you and your family all the way through and after your time at St Peter’s. The House system is the engine room of the school and the bedrock of pastoral care alongside other structures and there is a wealth of guidance and advice on making choices about careers and future pathways.

One thing to watch out for is that your final years at school can move pretty fast. Make the most of it and you will find that life at St Peter’s will be full of challenging fun as you learn the keys for life.
