Welcome to
St Peter’s Schools

St Peter’s is an Anglican Diocesan family of schools. We focus on personal achievement within an environment that balances high academic standards with sport, music, culture and the development of each child as an individual. A clearly defined value system – comprising respect for each individual, courtesy, and honest and open communication – underpins our ethos.

From Our Community

I often get asked the question: Why do you love your school so much? My answer is quite simple. It is because of the people. Coming into the final stretch of my high school career and having met so many people along the way, I can’t tell you that I have ever met two completely alike St Petrians.  Every child is different, yet every child belongs. Uniqueness and difference are celebrated here and through that, we get to learn more than we could ever learn from a textbook.

I wanted to convey my personal thanks to the teachers and your entire team at St. Peter’s. What a privilege to be part of this family!  Teachers have stepped up on Zoom meetings and with online teaching, supporting and encouraging our boys and contributing to their overall independence and helping them find a little familiarity And structure in this ‘new normal’. Fielding questions and concerns from stressed parents!

I don’t usually do things like this but I honestly felt the need to write to you and say thank you (for what it is worth). Thank you for the professionalism in which your staff have shown over the last few weeks and for the fun videos that you have personally posted to keep everyone engaged and focused on the important things.

I am so proud to have my son at a school that teaches primarily through the example they set. Well done and thank you again!

– Boys Prep Parent

Just thought I’d drop you a short note to say well bloody done! You guys and your teaching staff have been doing a fantastic job of navigating parents and pupils through this chaotic quagmire.

The online delivery has been world class and St Peter’s commitment to keep things going and relevant for the boys through this disruptive period is really appreciated. 

– Boys Prep Parent

I love this school with everything I have, this school is my heartbeat, my pride, my passion, my other half. This school offers so much, from outstanding academic achievement, to strutting it on the dance floor or scoring that last-minute winner on the sports field. The facilities and extra murals allow you to be a part of anything you want and to be the person you want to be.

– Johnty Webb, 2020 Head Boy

I just wanted to express our sincere gratitude to all the staff for making this whole experience the best that it could possibly be under the circumstances.  It has been a huge amount of extra work and yet you still take various parent’s comments into consideration. We have been so impressed with the programme that you have offered the girls. Even the Arcade day last Wednesday was also so much fun for Rachel and was just what she needed at that time. Thank you also for making the settling back into school process so easy for the girls even though there are so many big changes. Rachel has been bubbling over since being back.
