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


The horseshoe at the front of St Peter's SchoolThe St Peter's School Chapel is situated at the front of the school near the library and the historic Memorial Hall.

Chapel life is an integral part of the moral and spiritual education offered by the school. The regular pattern of three services each week allows Christian worship to be experienced. It is here that the school will express the values of its Christian foundation and in the light of those values face the joys and sorrows of its community life and reflect upon some of the challenges of the modern world.

St Peter’s has a full-time Church of England Chaplain who not only delivers regular services but also provides religious education and pastoral care.

The addresses at regular chapels are given by the Chaplain or by visiting speakers from a variety of traditions. Once a year each House is responsible for leading a service.

Once a term, a sung Eucharist is celebrated with the whole school. There are also voluntary services on key days such as Ash Wednesday. Candidates are prepared for the annual confirmation service which happens in March.

As we all adjust to new ways of living and learning during the global coronavirus pandemic, our Chaplain Rev'd Daniel Jones will be sharing reassuring words of wisdom and support for all members of the St Peter's School community.

We will be sharing his thoughts on this page, which will be updated regularly.
