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.

Permission for absence in advance

It is expected that pupils will honour their School commitments. However, if there is a forthcoming event for which permission for absence is sought, parents must write in the first instance to the Housemaster/mistress who may in turn pass on the request to the Head Master. Any requests for absence should be made as far in advance as possible.
