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.

St Peter's School


CCF 25m Range 21 01 19 (94)St Peter’s runs a Combined Cadet Force with Army and RAF sections.

CCF provides pupils with the opportunity to develop their self-discipline and responsibility. It provides practical exercises that help improve their endurance and resourcefulness while encouraging them to persevere in often difficult conditions.

The school is fortunate to have several former military personnel as volunteer staff in the CCF. In the weekly sessions cadets learn, among others things, drill, weapons handling and navigation.

In the RAF section pupils also learn aircraft recognition and the principles of flight. We try to get every RAF cadet flying at least once a year at Church Fenton. In addition, every year the CCF attends a summer camp.

Students can join the CCF in the Fourth Form, at which time we also offer the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.
