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.

StPeters16Day2 70St Peter's offers a rich and varied academic curriculum. Pupils have the opportunity to work with staff in a variety of departments through initiatives such as Exploration Week for Lower Sixth pupils in addition to formal teaching.

Each area of the academic curriculum is the responsibility of the Head of Department who, along with the Academic Deputy, plans and manages the teaching of their subject.

Examination courses are chosen by the Head of Department to best challenge St Peter’s pupils and these are under continual review.

All subjects are taught in dedicated teaching spaces which allows for their specialisation.
