Ofsted & School Performance

St Peter’s is a Good School. That was the view of Ofsted when they inspected the school in March 2017.

Inspectors found: 

‘Safeguarding is now effective and leaders are tenacious in their actions to keep students safe.’

‘Safeguarding is now not only effective, but a real strength of the school.’

‘Teaching, learning and assessment is typically good across all key stages with some that is better, including in the sixth form.’
