Ages 4 to 11


Having opened the doors to our very first reception classes in September 2014, we have continued to grow each year. In September 2020 we became a complete all-through school, with 420 children from Reception to Year 6 based at our Iford site.

The Primary Phase is a safe, caring, academically ambitious environment where children flourish, developing their skills and God-given talents. Every child is recognised as a child of God — what makes them unique is known by staff and celebrated. Because our children feel understood, valued and loved at school, they can thrive and become the very best that they can be.

At St Peter’s, our children love to learn and learn to love. Our thematic curriculum is centred on engaging topics which appeal to the children’s interests and excite them about their learning. Learning has a meaningful purpose which motivates children to produce their very best outcome consistently. Children are helped to advance their creativity and reasoning skills through opportunities to collaborate, innovate, problem-solve and discover together.

Inspired by the Gospel, as well as the examples of St John Baptist de La Salle and Brother Lionel, our children are preparing not only to contribute to society, but to transform it – through their love for others and spirit of service. Every day, we aim to live by our mission statement:

With Christ as our Guide,

Learning together,

Loving God and each other,

Becoming the best we can be.

We are a school that works closely with families and parishes because we recognise that educating young people is a joint enterprise between the school, home and church community — it requires genuine partnership. Our staff work tirelessly to ensure the very best for our children. 

It is a genuine privilege to serve our children and their families and to lead such a highly dedicated team.

Please join us for our Primary Open Evening on Thursday 10th October 2024 from 6pm to 7.30pm. The Welcome Talk is at 6.15pm, and you can also enjoy a tour of the school, meet members of our dedicated team and view our outstanding facilities. We look forward to seeing you. 

Alison Malone, Acting Head of the Primary Phase
