Day Places 

If you are relocating to live in York from another country and are looking for a day place for your child, please review our Admissions pages and contact us with any queries. Your child would be in an English language school, although English as an Additional Language (EAL) support is available throughout the school. 

Please note that we do not sponsor study visas for day pupils so you will be asked for evidence of your child's Leave to Remain in the United Kingdom during the application process if they do not have a British, British National Overseas (BNO) or Irish passport.

If you are not from England or have no knowledge or experience of the English education system, please find below some useful information on age-groups, qualifications and where your child will fit.

Boarding 

St Peter's accepts a small number of overseas boarding pupils each year from age 11 (J4/Year 7) upwards. Entry is extremely competitive and you should contact us as early as possible and prior to making an application. 

We expect a high standard of written and spoken English from boarding applications and this will be assessed in the admissions process. English as an Additional Language (EAL) support is available throughout the school to help in any specific areas.

St Peter's is a licensed sponsor of Child Study Visas for boarders and parents must state on application whether they wish to apply for a visa. Parents and Guardians are asked to note that the School is not responsible for the arrangement and administration of pupil visas and passports.

In accordance with UK Visas & Immigration regulations, a copy of overseas boarders' passports, visas and supporting documents will be kept by the School. It is the responsibility of the pupil's parents via their Guardian to ensure that passports and visas are kept up to date.

For more information, please go to: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/uk-visas-and-immigration 

All overseas boarders must have an educational guardian who lives within two hours' drive of the school. We recommend that you appoint a guardian accredited by AEGIS. For more information, please visit our page on Guardians

The School has a comprehensive procedure to ensure safe transit of its boarding pupils. Please visit our page on boarders' transport arrangements or contact us for more information. 

International Agents 

We welcome enquiries from International Agents and we can be contacted through the British Boarding Schools Network

Agents receive 10% of the first year's fee for any pupil who is successfully placed with us.
