We are a happy, oversubscribed and very successful two form entry (Nursery to Year 6) Church of England primary school situated in the historic heart of London, close to Victoria Station. We have a strong staff team, committed governors and supportive parents.
Pupils benefit from small class sizes (maximum 25) and a broad and balanced curriculum, including Latin, violin and PE specialist teaching.
We serve a very diverse community drawn from a wide area, and with over half the pupils having English as a second language the school is inclusive and generous in its approach to life and learning.
We have strong links to St Peter’s Church and a spirituality which embraces difference and respect for other faith traditions, we seek to enable all children to learn and to flourish in our fascinating city, discovering the skills they need for today and for a changing future.
An outstanding SIAMS inspection in 2018 stated, “The distinctiveness and effectiveness of St Peter’s as a Church of England school is outstanding.”
The Ofsted subject inspection in October 2019 stated, “The Latin curriculum is ambitious and exceeds the requirements of the national curriculum for languages at key stage 2.”
As a Church of England school our purpose is to provide a broad curriculum which strives to achieve excellence within a Christian context. Through Religious Education and a daily act of worship, we also aim to develop an understanding and knowledge of Christianity whilst being aware of and respecting other faiths.
