About St Peter's Catholic School

St Peter’s is a fully comprehensive, outstanding, 11 – 18 Catholic School where learners of all abilities enjoy and achieve. We have 1288 on roll including 252 in the Sixth Form.
School and Community
Serving the Catholic community in south and central Solihull, we have very close links with our local parishes, all of whose clergy are frequent visitors to the School.

The majority of our pupils come from our five partner primary schools: Our Lady of the Wayside (Shirley), Our Lady of Compassion (Olton), St Augustine’s (Solihull), St George and St Teresa (Dorridge) and St Andrew’s (Sheldon); the remainder come from some twenty other primary schools. Very positive partnerships exist between St Peter’s and its five partner primary schools; our curriculum projects and transition activities are highly regarded.
At St Peter’s we believe that ‘Faith is our Foundation’ and we live out our mission through the virtues and values of the Catholic Pupil Profile. We are very much a Catholic, family school. This is fostered by the tradition of Governors, staff and colleagues from our partner primary schools sending their own children to St Peter’s. Parish and school communities are, therefore, cohesive; this nurtures the excellent relationships and family atmosphere that visitors regularly comment upon. The majority of our pupils benefit from stable families with parents who value education and support their children’s learning. Very positive attitudes to learning are, therefore, evident in school.

Arranging a visit to St Peter's Catholic School

Visits to the school are encouraged, to arrange an appointment for week commencing Monday 13th December 2021 or if you have any questions, please contact Mrs Jennie Pate on or 0121 703 8304.
