St Peter's 13-18
As the world’s fourth oldest school, founded in 627 AD, St Peter’s combines a long tradition of academic rigour within a focused learning community, with a lively, modern approach to education. The sporting, artistic, intellectual and cultural opportunities at the school are inspiring, stimulating both participation and achievement at the highest levels.
Rated 'excellent' in all areas in our Independent Schools Inspectorate report (April 2017), and with some of the best examination results of any school in the North, we are an HMC day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 13-18.
Join us for our autumn Open Events to explore the School, meet our friendly staff and pupils, and discover what it means to be part of the St Peter's School community.
We were The Sunday Times North Independent School of the Year in 2019.
St Peter’s develops determined all-rounders capable of contributing to society once they leave, confident in the skills they have acquired at this historic school.
The Sunday Times
St Peter’s is an exceptionally happy and friendly school, where enthusiasm, fair play and development of the whole person are considered as equally important as success in examinations.
