Offering a well-rounded education on a happy, spacious campus in Fourways, St Peter’s Schools have high academic, sporting and cultural standards conveyed in correspondence with its strong Christian ethos.

The staff and pupils at St Peter’s operate within a clearly-defined values system. The daily interactions between learners and teachers are underpinned by tolerance, respect and compassion. All of these factors play a valuable role in the development of happy, well-adjusted girls and boys who are ready to make a difference in society. The girls’ and boys’ schools are separate entities on the same campus under a single banner of excellence.

St Peter’s is an accredited Thinking Skills School, and this is incorporated into their Media Centre – a space that is cosy and welcoming. The 36 acre campus with park-like grounds creates a beautiful setting for learning, while retaining a small and intimate environment. In terms of facilities, the school also offers modern computer centres, a dining room, a cultural centre, fully-equipped school hall, classrooms with under floor heating and a Chapel – the heart of the Christian practices in the school.

In terms of specialist offerings, St Peter’s Schools include a prolific Music School that oversees four choirs; senior and junior jazz band; percussion ensemble; voice training; Royal Schools of Music (London) practical and theory exams. They also offer a thorough Academic Support Unit.

Extra-murally, St Peter’s Schools offer a range of sports to its learners. In addition to these, the school has a rich cultural programme that is age appropriate, stimulating and fun. This includes activities such as chess, cooking, pottery, tree/bird identification and drama.

In keeping with the Christian ethos of the schools, the girls, boys and staff are involved in a comprehensive Social Responsibility programme in conjunction with Diepsloot and Sefikeng Schools. In partnering with these schools, a focus is placed on the general upliftment of those less fortunate in the community. These initiatives have seen the erection of infrastructure; book and computer donations to stock libraries and media centres; a teacher training project; literacy programme; classroom maintenance and cultural upliftment exercises.
