Welcome to St Peter's
Church of England Aided School
New Headteacher Appointed.
Dear Parents and Carers,
I am very pleased to inform you that the Governing Body of St Peter’s has appointed Phil Randall as the new permanent Headteacher effective from 23 November 2016.
We received applications for the post from a number of candidates, followed by a shortlisting process and a demanding two days of interviews. The interview panel were keen to ensure that the successful applicant could work with the Governing Body to deliver our vision for the school which reflects three key strategic priorities: Outstanding Teaching and Learning, Embedding Leadership and Christian Ethos at all levels, and building strong partnerships. Phil was able to demonstrate a clear understanding of these priorities and under his leadership we are confident that the school will be well placed to deliver this vision.
I am sure that you will join the Governing Body in wishing Phil every success in his new role.
With very best wishes,
Bindu Arjoon, Chair of Governors
St Peter’s Church of England Aided School
Welcome to our website which we hope will give you an insight into what we offer our young people and their families.
Students only get one chance at school and we are determined to ensure that those who attend St Peter’s receive a first class education which will prepare them for the rest of their lives. As a church school we create positive learning habits so that students are inspired and supported to enjoy living life to the full.
These habits are nurtured with real and purposeful opportunities in and beyond the classroom, creating honest, hardworking, kind and compassionate people who are aware of themselves and others. St Peter’s students are ultimately empowered to make the world a better place.
The way in which we inspire, challenge and support learning is firmly founded on high quality educational research and Christian values. These strong foundations are what we call our CORE principles.
Every lesson and every decision is guided by our CORE principles.
Creating Learning Habits
At St Peter’s we equip students with learning habits in order that they can find imaginative and responsible solutions to the everyday challenges of life. Character is formed by the habits we choose to develop and we intentionally create positive habits in all lessons.
Opportunities for All
St Peter’s students are the leaders of tomorrow. We provide them with opportunities to learn how to lead, in and beyond the classroom, in local and national contexts. St Peter’s staff are passionate about making a difference so that students see themselves as thoughtful and creative problem solvers. We run an ambitious training programme in which all staff are given the highest quality training and professional development to support them in providing the very best experiences and outcomes for students.
Responsibility for Progress
At St Peter’s we have a culture in which we all take responsibility to be the best we can be. All students progressing in all lessons is the priority. This will always be the main focus. Ultimately student achievement is really about an individual making their very best personal progress. We firmly believe that we can all make progress and be the very best we can be.
Expectations, Excellence, Endeavour, Enjoyment
St Peter’s is a learning community that believes excellence is always possible. This means we have high expectations and levels of support that mean we never, never, never give up on learning.
This is just a glimpse of how we look to provide enjoyable and meaningful learning opportunities and outcomes. Please arrange to visit us in person and see why joining us on the St Peter’s learning journey is so fulfilling and worthwhile.
