Principal's Welcome

At St Peter’s we are aware that ‘Every Life is Enriched’ with a positive Christian ethos and Core Values; Service, Thankfulness, Peace, Empathy, Trust, Endurance and Reverence.  We welcome all faiths and none, but are proud to be the only Church of England 11 – 16 provision in Stoke on Trent.  Christianity runs through the Academy at every level. In September 2019 we had a SIAMS Inspection from the Church of England – we were graded as Good with excellent features. 

There is a real emphasis on teaching and learning at St Peter’s and students are challenged to reach their potential, because they are set high targets and the Academy expects the highest standards of all students and staff.  It is no coincidence that in August 2019, St Peter’s achieved the best GCSE results in its history and is the most improved high school in Stoke on Trent.  There are 10 DfE measures for outcomes and we made improvements in all 10 of them.  We are also now oversubscribed in in Year 7. 

Our aim is to produce enthusiastic and lifelong learners, by nurturing self-esteem and promoting independence and leadership. Attitude to Learning grades are awarded every lesson of every day.  This allows us to recognise and reward all students who deserve it, regardless of their starting point.  The Student Council are also a very influential group when it comes to setting and reviewing our policies and procedures. 

St Peter’s boasts a state of the art, vibrant learning environment and impressive resources for our students so they can flourish.  Our classrooms encourage creativity and we have in excess of 400 student computers, laptops and iPads.  The sporting facilities are some of the best in the city with a full-size 3G pitch and multi-purpose Sports Hall.  These are currently used by national associations, professional football clubs and local teams.  Please visit our Lettings section if you are interested in hiring any of our facilities.

You will always be assured of a very warm welcome so please contact us and arrange a visit.
