St Peter’s Preparatory School is non-selective yet, in 2017, thirteen of our Year 8 pupils sat the Exeter School entrance exam and all of them were offered places. Even more cause for celebration is that four of them achieved academic awards to Exeter School.
Four of our children also succeeded in passing the entrance examination to Colyton Grammar School and one to Torquay Boys’ Grammar School.
Furthermore, our twenty-seven Year 8 students have been offered twenty-three scholarships between them to senior schools including Blundell’s, Exeter School, Millfield, Stover School, Taunton School and Wellington School.
77% of pupils in Year 8 at St Peter’s Preparatory School last year were successful in being awarded scholarships to their senior school of choice. For the last 5 years, the percentage of Year 8 leavers who have been offered scholarships has been steadily rising. 56% of the 2013-2014 cohort of Year 8s achieved scholarships and that figure now stands at 77% – an all-time high.
Children at St Peter’s study the following subjects:
- Art & design
- Games & physical education
- Information & communications technology
- Personal, social, health & citizenship education
- Religion & philosophy
Children are given the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways: through exploration and research; to break down subject boundaries and to acquire a mix of knowledge and skills.
