St Peter’s School is one of the oldest schools in the world, with a long and eventful history. We are proud of our rich heritage, dating back to AD627, and our 1,400-year association with York Minster and the city of York.

St Peter’s School Archives
Whilst St Peter’s has a long and eventful history, most of the materials contained in the archive date from the occupation of the current site (c1844).
The School aims to collect materials relating to the history of the school and its former pupils. Most of the earlier surviving documents relating to St Peter’s can be found in the York Minster Archives (records of the Dean and Chapter).
The most regularly used publications are in the process of being digitised to increase access for former pupils, family historians and researchers worldwide.
If you have any information or would like to view the archives, please contact our volunteer Archivist John Armstrong or Anthony Robinson at [email protected]. Please note that John volunteers on Wednesdays and will respond to your query as soon as possible.
