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 30One of the great strengths of St Olave’s is that it is part of a 3-18 family of schools. Pupils therefore belong to the wider community of St Peter’s but have a very clear identity as Olavites whilst they are here. That sense of family is very important; indeed many pupils have siblings at Clifton School and Nursery or St Peter’s.

We also try to get involved in the wider community as much as is practical with children aged 8-13. We have a 'charity of the term' and pupils are encouraged to come up with imaginative fundraising ideas.

There is also an increased drive to educate our pupils to have a greater awareness of their role in sustainability. To this end we have an Eco Council who have regular meetings and work towards improving the grounds and school environment.
