St Peter’s Prep launched the ‘little sibling’, to our family of schools, on Saturday, 22 June!
We are delighted to announce that St Peter’s Pre-Prep is full for 2020!
It was with great excitement that a fun-filled day was hosted where parents, and their children, got a feel for this wonderful new facility.
The Grade 5 girls have started an inquiry-based learning unit based on plants in their Exploration and Learning/STEM lessons.
St Peter’s Girls Prep Music Department held its popular Musical Showcase recently. This was a magical evening for the performers and audience alike, as they shared the love of music, which embodies the spirit in this department of the School.
The Musical Showcase is a platform where the pupils have the opportunity to perform and thereby show off the musical skills that they have learnt through the year. They are encouraged to be creative and independent - the girls made the most of this occasion. The focus of the Showcase was on composition and arrangement.
Mr Simon Henderson, the current Head Master of Eton College (Eton, Berkshire, England), spent time as a gap year student, at St Peter’s Prep. This was years back when the current Rector of St Peter’s Prep, Greg Royce, began his tenure as Headmaster of the Boys School.
At ISASA’s request, Simon Sean Henderson was approached - asking him to deliver a keynote address at the ISASA and Independent Schools Heads’ Conference, which took place over the half-term last week.

On Wednesday, 25 July, the St Peter’s Girls JP community brought 67 minutes of happiness and many more hours of fun and reading to the children of Sefikeng School. Over 450 packs consisting of a book, ball and biscuits were sponsored by the very generous girls and their families. This means that every child from Grade 0 - 7 received an age-appropriate book to take home. On the morning, many of the parents and girls then went to the school and interacted with the children.
Two fun-filled events were held at St Peter’s Girls Prep School recently - in celebration of Father’s Day and to create an opportunity for the girls to have some special, quality time with their dads!

The St Peter’s JP Department held a ‘Day of Exploration’ on Thursday, 29 March.
This awareness that play matters, is not new. However, with the increasing pressure on schools to educate for a growing technological and ever-changing world, as well as the need to develop 21st Century skills, the concept of play has been seen as a luxury that children don’t have time for. Play’s positive contribution to learning is not a new realisation, but at St Peter’s we have become increasingly aware of the impact of play on learning.
