20th Anniversary Celebrations and Blessing of the new Administration Office
St Peter’s College – a dynamic, young, Anglican co-educational high school was born out of the St Peter’s Preparatory in 1998. The opening of the co-educational College was a response to a shortage of independent co-educational high schools in the Sandton area and the need to provide education to prepare students to the changing local and international environments. The College aims to develop students who are confident, resilient and who make a meaningful contribution to South Africa and the world at large, irrespective of the career they choose.
Since opening doors with only a total number of 90 students from Grade 8 -10, six full time and three-part time educators, St Peter’s College continues to successfully fulfill its founding mandate. The College prides itself in offering all the students an opportunity to excel on all fronts, be it in the academics; where they are challenged to become independent, critical thinkers; in co-curricular activities, where every student has an opportunity to explore, identify and grow their potential.
St Peter’s College has grown to be a school with over 600 students with well over 100 staff members comprising of 60 academic staff who are becoming specialist s in their field. The College now offers 32 co-curricular activities. In 2017 the College achieved a 100% Matric Pass rate with well over 200 subject distinctions and over 250 B symbols, and a 97% Bachelor’s Degree Pass (University Entrance). Several College students go on to represent the Gauteng province, the district and some have represented the country across various co-curricular programmes internationally.
St Peter’s College alumni have grown in number to over 2000; most of whom are studying, working and are establishing themselves as powerful forces in the vital sectors of the economy in South Africa and internationally.
