S. Peter’s is an 11-18 Church of England Academy which has served the community since its foundation in 1844. Our school is a distinctively Christian school based on the Christian values of Agape, Courage and Perseverance, Compassion, Faith, Hope and Trust, Fellowship and Community, Forgiveness and Humility. We welcome and value students of all faith backgrounds, reflecting the rich and diverse heritage of Wolverhampton. The ‘Five Keys to Learning’, displayed in every classroom, are underpinned by the world’s six major faiths, encouraging all students to work together to achieve their God-given potential. Our long association with S. Peter’s Church in the centre of Wolverhampton allows us all to celebrate Eucharist together on a number of important occasions throughout the year. These include Year 7 Dedication in September, Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Easter, St. Peter’s Day and the end of the academic year in July. Students actively participate in acts of worship every day within school and are encouraged to plan and deliver their own worship sessions from the very start in Year 7.
Safeguarding and Pastoral Care
Every child and parent knows that feeling safe in school is paramount. At S. Peter’s the safety and well-being of every student is the highest priority. We have a dedicated team of Safeguarding and Pastoral Staff who ensure that every student is given the support to feel safe and happy at school.
The school provides a wide and balanced curriculum relevant to the needs and aspirations of all students. As students’ progress through the school they are supported by subject specialists, pastoral leaders and careers education and guidance, allowing them to choose subjects that will prepare them thoroughly for the world of work.
Outside the classroom
The belief at S. Peter’s is that life outside the classroom is vital. With that in mind, students are encouraged to participate in a wide and varied extracurricular programme of enrichment activities. Sporting activities include frequent local matches and tournaments, sporting tours of Italy and our annual Sports Day at Aldersley Stadium. Every student is given the opportunity to learnamusical instrument and our musicians have been awarded Gold at the National Concert Band Festival for four years running. Recent music tours include Belgium and USA. The National Theatre visited with their professional cast, crew and set to perform two performances of ‘Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime’ to our students and those of our neighbouring school. We are also celebrating the story writing talents of 46 of our Year 8, 9 and 10 students who have had their work published in a ‘Young Writers’ anthology. The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme has been allowing students to develop their resilience and independence for many years.
