When you join our St Peter’s College faith community...
We commit to immerse your child in an education that is deeply rooted in Catholic values. We focus on providing an outstanding education that is underpinned by a growing understanding of how each person can connect to God, to those around them, and to a life expressed in love, compassion and service. Your child will learn to follow the words of our school prayer by being challenged everyday to “live lives that matter, lives that change our world for the better” with “eyes that see the needs of others and a heart that reaches out to fill those needs”. As a result, this values education will provide them with a moral compass to live out their faith beliefs in a world that will constantly challenge those beliefs.
We commit to building a strong partnership between you, your child and the school. This partnership will give you a voice and encourage you to participate in choices that are made. Through our unique “Connect to Succeed” programme, every student and parent works hand in hand with a “Learning Coach” in a partnership that will guide and plan an educational pathway tailored to meet each individual’s particular future needs.
We commit to a 21st century, modern learning environment, which enriches student learning, enhances collaboration, and promotes self-management skills. We encourage the use of digital technologies through our Bring Your Own Device policy, and have free ultra-fast broadband Wi-Fi access throughout the school. At St Peter’s College, your child will be well connected to the world that lies beyond the school gates.
We invite you to join our unique educational community.
