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.

Science Society

The Science Society has been developed to stretch and challenge our pupils at St Peter's. The society is very active and there are regular lectures from outside speakers throughout the year as well as our famous Christmas lecture performed by a member of each of the science departments.

The society works closely with the Design and Technology Department and hosts the annual Great Egg Race every September. The society’s annual events always culminate with the inter-house Science Society quiz.
