Admissions Policies

The ethos of St Peter’s is: to provide a high quality education within the context of a Christian environment.  An understanding of the Roman Catholic faith, in line with the Gospel message, underpins the whole work of the school.   The main aim is to develop the self esteem, dignity and respect of all members of the community by concentrating on each person's infinite worth in the eyes of God. 

We ask all parents applying for a place at St Peter’s to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community. This does not affect the right of parents who are not of the faith of this school to apply for and be considered for a place.
