St Peter's School

OP Club

All Old Peterites become members of the Old Peterite Club. 

The Club is run by a committee which consists of Old Peterites, the Head Master and the School’s Development & Alumni Manager, who acts as the Secretary to the Club.  The Club holds three meetings a year, and it works with the School to support a programme of OP events, including annual OP Dinners in Newcastle, and the East and West Riding. Committee members also volunteer at events such as OP Day.
