Welcome to St Peter’s R.C. High School
Open House Wednesday
Our mission is to provide a rigorous and broad 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.
Our 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.
Our school’s Christian ethos underpins all its work and provides all members of the school community with a safe environment which is paramount in creating a successful learning environment.
Our school’s vision is to provide an excellent education in a safe supportive learning environment, one where people are valued and make positive contributions to the school community, and where students go on to become responsible, independent members of society.
At the heart of everything we do are our students. We are aspirational for our students and want them to have high aspirations also. Our curriculum is student-centred and we aim for their education to be inspiring, stimulating and challenging.
We strive to develop confident, happy students who progress spiritually, academically & socially, whatever their starting point; to educate the whole person; to build on prior stages of learning; for students to become successful learners who are prepared for the future, who know they are unique, who know their own worth and are kind, charitable, empathetic and aware. We work with parents, carers and pupils to develop young people who are resilient & optimistic (who use & are reminded to use growth mindset when work is challenging).
We want our students to become independent learners, who are critical in their thinking, informed in their choices and confident in their ability to succeed in the modern world, who are respectful and tolerant, focused and confident and who strive for the best. In addition to their academic lives we also want our students to benefit from extra curricular experiences in the arts, sport and culture which will help them become well rounded balanced adults. We want our students to be confident, reflective; literate, articulate, numerate, analytical, creative, team workers, problem solvers, active and healthy; digitally literate and ‘savvy’ about e-safety; and appreciative of the wider environment, of culture and of history.
All students receive lessons in religious education and our Catholic identity and spiritual life are reflected in all areas of our school.
