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.

Head Master's Assemblies

Horseshoe, Autumn 2016

In addition to our Chapel services, all pupils, from all day and boarding houses, assemble each Thursday in the Memorial Hall.

As such a busy and active school, joining together allows us to reflect. We celebrate efforts, achievements and new discoveries. 

Assemblies are also the place where we explore our school values, relating them to the good and bad events we hear of in the world, as well as to the challenges and opportunities of different points of the academic year.

It is a time for setting shared intentions, reminding ourselves of our purpose in being here, and focusing on what we share in common.
