We welcome applications from learners of all faiths to our inclusive Church school. We understand just how important it is to make the right decision for your child, and as such we encourage all prospective parents and pupils to get in touch and visit the school prior to making an application to make sure that our school is the right choice for you and your family.

Visits to School

Under normal circumstances, prospective parents are invited to visit the school prior to application to meet with the Headteacher and ask any questions that they may have about their child’s education. Unfortunately, our usual open events and visits cannot take place this year, so instead we have created an ‘Online Open Day’ to give you a bit of a flavour of the education we offer here at St. Peter’s. You can access this information through the school website, by clicking here:


We are also hosting a number of virtual open evenings for parents throughout November and December to allow you to meet the Reception team and to ask any questions you may have prior to application. Dates and booking information for these sessions are included here and on the Online Open Day page.
