About St Peter's CofE Primary School

St Peter’s School
We are a small school with approximately 160 pupils and 40 nursery children. The school has seven classes, each is a single year group class, ranging in size from 18—30 pupils.

Being a small school there is a wonderfully friendly and family orientated feeling to the school where good relationships are made between staff and pupils. There is a real sense of community to the school, surrounding area and St Peter’s Church.

We use St Peter’s Church for many of the events in the Church calendar. We hold an Easter Service, Christmas Carol Service and a Leaver’s Service at the Church, which is within walking distance of the school. The children always enjoy their visits to the Church and these a high point in the academic year.

Founding of The School
Our school was founded in 1857 by the first Parish Priest of St Peter’s, Fr George Rundle Prynne. He saw the work of the school as a very important part of the work of the Church and wanted every boy and girl to have the best opportunities to grow and learn so that they would be able to make the best of themselves in adult life. Our school is, therefore, an essential part of the work of St Peter’s Church.
