Information about the school

St Peter's is a happy, successful and over subscribed school with 210 children on roll.

In February 2021 we moved into our long-awaited, brand new building at the heart of the Hawkenbury area of Tunbridge Wells. This has given us an attractive, light and airy building with 7 classrooms alongside a school hall, kitchen, offices and outside facilities large enough for a 2FE primary school.

In March 2014 we were judged as outstanding by Ofsted in all categories. We have many awards including Healthy Schools, Active Mark and Eco-Schools.

As we are a small, church school we have a unique relationship between children, parents, staff and governors which has created an enabling ethos throughout the whole school.
