In response to the global coronavirus outbreak, we have implemented a strict visitor policy to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the whole school community. We ask that all non-essential visitors also stay away from the school at this time. If your visit is essential, please read our visitor policy before you visit the school.

St Peter's 13-18

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.

You can read an introduction from John Coles, OP President 2018-2020 and more about his aims for the OP Club here
