About St Peter's Church of England Middle School
St Peter’s is a mixed, non-selective, Church of England, middle deemed secondary school without sixth form based in Windsor, Berkshire. It operates under the Diocese of Oxford and is supported by the multi-academy Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust. The school will provide 271 places for students aged 9-13, when fully subscribed.
The Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust was founded in 2012, and St Peter’s opened as a new provision in November 2014.
Values and Vision
The primary vision of St Peter’s is to “Rise above the ordinary”. The school’s Church of England faith is a key part of its educational philosophy, and inspires a strong desire for achievement, sense of community and a culture of tolerance for others.
The school's other goals include helping students to realise their academic potential, strive for excellence, become socially and spiritually aware, and develop an appreciation for life, all while gaining the skills necessary to go on to further or higher education.
“Students say they feel safe and well cared for, show positive attitudes and are keen to learn. Key areas for action have been identified [by the recently appointed headteacher] and work has begun. This is shared and supported by the newly appointed Chair of the Governing Body.”
A more recent SIAMs report also judged that significant changes had been made to the governing body, staff team and curriculum.
