In response to the global coronavirus outbreak, St Peter’s School, York has implemented a strict visitor policy to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the whole school community. Following instructions from the government, the school site will be closed to pupils (apart from children of key workers) from the end of the day on Friday 20 March with no indication given of when that situation will change. 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.

StPeters Nov18 45One of the differences between St Olave’s and other schools in York is that our children have access to specialist teachers at a much younger age, and in a broader range of subjects.

In Year 4, pupils will spend around 70% of their time with one of the Year 4 teachers, but the rest of the time they will be taught by specialist teachers. By Year 6, the top year in a primary school, they will have a timetable and move from teacher to teacher just like they would at a secondary school.

We feel it is important that we give our pupils more freedom and responsibility than is found in other schools, because they rise to the challenge. They need to be pushed, stimulated and stretched.
