St. Peter’s is a successful and oversubscribed 11-16 Catholic Secondary School of approximately 1040 pupils. We primarily serve the children of our partner parishes across a wide area in Wigan, Lancashire and St. Helens. We pride ourselves on living out our mission statement to be a ‘Learning and serving community enriched through friendship and Christian faith.’ We are committed to both high standards of learning and personal conduct and to being a warm inclusive school where every child can succeed.
The vast majority of our pupils achieve expected or above expected standards at the end of KS2 and this leads to challenging targets at GCSE level. Through our clear expectations and nurturing environment, we create a calm focused learning environment where teachers can teach and the needs of all of our pupils can be met.
The curriculum offer at St. Peter’s is a wide and varied one with a very strong academic core and a diverse offer of Arts, Technical and practical courses. I would encourage you to explore this offer on the school website.
Our staff team is a strong mix of very experienced and more recently qualified colleagues and they are very well supported at all levels by our Professional Development Programme. Staff wellbeing is at the heart of our philosophy and we have embraced a number of strategies to promote this including staff wellbeing cafes, wellbeing buddies and the opportunity to work from home where practicable. Staff Development is supported through an ambitious CPD offer and the St. Peter’s ‘Talent Ladder’ of development opportunities.
Our Catholic ethos is at the centre of our school. We welcome colleagues from all faith backgrounds and none who are happy to support and promote this ethos. Our pastoral system is designed to support the development of each young person to become the unique human being they are called to be. Our pupils are encouraged to be their true authentic selves and to respect difference of all kinds. Pupils at St. Peter’s show a deep level of care and respect for each other and for the adults who support them.
Working at St. Peter’s is challenging because we want to provide the very best for our young people, and it is rewarding because this is undertaken as part of a supportive and caring team who help each other to achieve this.
