Admissions’ process

Choosing a school is one of the most important and significant things we do for our children. Here at St Peter’s, we want to help you every step of the way as you make this decision.

Please telephone our Registrar & Marketing Manager, Rachel Elliott, on 01395 280335 to make initial inquiries and request a prospectus. Of course, you will have questions after you have read our prospectus, so do please call or email rachel.elliott@stpetersprepschool.co.uk.

Arrange a visit
We should be delighted to welcome you at one or more of our open days, where our year 8 pupils will take you on a tour of St Peter’s and you can chat to our staff. Our next School in action morning takes place on Wednesday 6 February 2019 from 10:00 until 12:00.

However, a personal tour of St Peter’s School can always be arranged for you on a normal school day by our Registrar. Please telephone 01395 280335 to organise this.

In order to register your child or children, please complete St Peter’s registration form and return it with the required registration fee to our Registrar.

Taster day
The next step in the process is for the prospective pupil to join us for a taster day. Taster nights are offered to potential boarders. All children go through an assessment when visiting St Peter’s so that staff can ascertain a starting point for the ‘value added’ process. Your child has the chance on their taster day to experience some routine lessons and this gives our teachers the opportunity to observe your child’s behaviour and performance. Feedback will be provided to parents at the end of the taster day.

In some year groups, we run a waiting list. We will inform you of your position on that list and progress towards hopeful entry.

According to our latest ISI Integrated Inspection Report:

Pupils achieve exceptionally well from EYFS onwards, both in their academic work and their extra-curricular activities.
