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.

Quality learning takes place because of the relationships which exist between staff and pupils. Our House and mentoring system, along with our ‘Seven Values’ framework which underpins them, means your child’s happiness and wellbeing is at the heart of what we do.

Our boarders in the Wentworth boarding house each belong to one of the above houses for day to day purposes so there is complete integration of boarding and day pupils in school activities.

See the section on Wentworth for more information about boarding options and life as junior boarder.
