At St. Peter's, we understand that the admissions process can be confusing and at times, stressful. Below is a guide to how you can apply to join our school family. At St. Peter's, we follow the vision of, "One Family, Aiming High, Learning Together with God," and the parable of The Lost Sheep. During your time with our school family, your child/children will learn the importance of being an individual and the importance of showing love to one another. This is linked to the teaching of the bible and Jesus. 

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.

Working parents may also be eligible for an additional 15 hours of care.  These two entitlements together make up 30 hours free childcare.  Parents will be responsible for checking their eligibility for the 15 additional hours.  If they are eligible, they will be given a code which they will present to their chosen provider to claim the funding for the additional 15 hours. Full details and changes can be found on
