St Peter's is a happy, successful and over subscribed school with 210 children on roll.
St Peter’s aims to be a centre of excellence which:
• Enables and inspires children to flourish
• Provides an inclusive, stimulating and safe educational setting that nurtures the God-given potential of every child
• Develops, encourages and supports an enthusiastic, committed staff, open to new ideas and challenges
• Values the partnership with the whole school community
• Is a vibrant hub for the local community with strong links to the church
At St Peter’s CEP School our Christian vision shapes all we do - "Growing together in knowledge, wisdom and faith". We inspire children to grow in the knowledge of God and his world, and to live in wisdom and faith. We nurture each pupil so that they can make the most of their God-given gifts and skills and be fruitful members of the community. Our inclusive curriculum has been carefully designed to provide all children with a broad and balanced education, through which our pupils are given a wide variety of opportunities and experience to grow and develop academically, physically, socially, morally and spiritually. This is complemented by a wide-range of extra-curricular activities including sports, arts, music and well-being to support the children to flourish.
The school has an energy and enthusiasm for learning and is highly focused on the needs of all the children and their individual progress. High quality, research-led, professional development for all staff members makes an excellent contribution to the quality of teaching and learning and leadership and is focused on priorities from the School Plan and subject action plans.
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 large school hall; well-equipped kitchen and offices; and outside facilities, including a sports field, Multi-Use Games Area and woodland area, large enough for a 2FE primary school.
In March 2014 we were judged as outstanding by Ofsted in all categories. The inspector commented: "St Peter's pupils love coming to school, rise to adults' high expectations and develop a love of learning."
As we are a relatively small, church school we have a unique relationship between children, parents, staff and governors which has created an enabling ethos throughout the whole school.
