Mission & values

St Peter's pupils

Vision

Our vision is to be a happy, thriving 3-18 co-educational day and boarding school community that combines a classical, high quality, all-round education with a forward-looking and exciting approach to learning.

We would like to build on our excellent reputation in the North and become known as one of the best all-round independent schools in the country.  We will do this by always working to improve as we live the School’s Christian values together.

The Seven Values

The School's Seven Values are for each and every member of the St Peter’s School community to practise – pupils, teaching and support staff, parents and governors – across the three schools.

Friendship: To be a welcoming, caring and inclusive community in which we can all feel valued and grow in confidence.

Trust: To speak with honesty and conviction, to listen carefully and openly, and promote strong relationships of trust and loyalty.

Wisdom: To develop enquiring minds and a lifelong love of learning, and provide the inspiration to achieve, through creative teaching and a breadth of co-curricular opportunity.

Compassion: To encourage self-respect, care for others and an active interest in the world beyond the school.

Endurance: To work hard and participate with whole-hearted commitment and resilience, reflecting on our disappointments and short-comings with honesty.

Humility: To conduct ourselves with generosity of spirit, praising effort and fair play and celebrating our successes with modesty.

Hope: To prepare for the future, always seeking to improve, and approaching each challenge and opportunity with energy and optimism.
