…and are really excited by the future prospect of our completed ‘all-through’ school by September 2020.  

Our children would like a Deputy Head of the Primary Phase who is ‘thoughtful, experienced, happy, fun and helpful,’ and who ‘understands their worries.’  

St. Peter’s ‘successfully fosters high-quality spiritual, moral, social and cultural education. Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. So is the quality of care, guidance and support, helping pupils become responsible young citizens. Parents greatly appreciate what the school does for their children.’ (Ofsted, 2017).  

St. Peter’s is a large all-through school (number on roll approximately 1850), educating children from 4-18.  Although we are a large school, governors, staff, pupils and parents all work closely together across our two sites. We are situated in Bournemouth near Dorset’s Jurassic Coast and the New Forest.
