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.

Calculators, Books and Lockers

St Peter's School

Calculators, Books and Lockers


Pupils are required to have their own calculator. We strongly
recommend the Casio fx-991EX CLASSWIZ, which is suitable for both GCSE and A-level Mathematics.

Please Note:

  • If a pupil does not have this particular calculator they could be disadvantaged in Maths lessons.
  • Please make sure that your son/daughter’s name is scratched onto the machine.


It would be a great help if we could assume that every pupil entering St Peter’s School owned their own dictionary. We suggest something small enough to be easily carried around, such as the Oxford Mini Dictionary.

All pupils should have their own German, Spanish or French Dictionaries (Collins Pocket – approx £6.99) depending on their subject choices.

Lockers and Padlocks

Each day pupil has a locker in a Common Room and a locker for games kit in the changing rooms. They must provide three padlocks, one for each locker.
