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.

Scholarships at St Peter’s are honorary and recognise academic excellence and achievement.

A number of scholarships are awarded at age 13, tenable for three years, and at age 16, tenable for two years.

The change from monetary scholarship awards to honorary ones means the monies previously used for scholarships are now going towards means-tested fee assistance.
