At St Peter's, we strive to offer a rich learning experience in its widest sense. We aim to develop every child's academic and character development through our broad and innovative curriculum and to enhance this through educational visits and by providing a wide range of opportunities to excel in their areas of interest and talent.
Music is very important to us at St Peter's, and we are a school who love to sing! We have 3 choirs and everyone has the chance to take part whether it is just for fun or whether you want to take your singing to an expert level, and compete in local and national competitions. We have been proud runners-up in Songs of Praise choir of the year and have taken first prizes in many local singing events. We also have a school orchestra and opportunities to learn a range of different musical instruments.
At St Peter's, children have the opportunity to take part in many high quality drama and musical performances, from their very first appearance in the Reception Nativity to performing in a large-scale Broadway Kids musical as a grand finale in year 6. Over the last few years, our year 6 pupils (accompanied by our Majors' choir) have enjoyed taking part in a range of productions including The Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Madagascar and - most recently - The Jungle Book. We take the children to the West End where they watch the professionals perform, and then they return to recreate the show on our very own stage. As well as experiencing theatre trips to the Bristol Old Vic and the West End, the children are also treated to an annual pantomime that is written and performed by the school staff! At St Peter's, everyone is encouraged to take part and enjoy performing!
We have a very broad sporting offer at St Peter's with high quality coaching from PH Sports. Every child has a whole afternoon of sport each week and experience a wide range of activities from gymnastics to ball games, swimming, athletics and dance. Children have a chance to compete in a range of inter-school and county sporting events both during the school day and in extra-curricular clubs. Sports Days are a highlight of our sporting calendar and everyone gets a chance to take part. The staff and parents' races are always very popular and highly competitive!
