Our Mission Statement expresses our intention to ensure that all students, regardless of their academic ability, are given the opportunity to fulfil their potential – not only academically but spiritually, morally, socially, emotionally and physically. So that all students may “have life and have it to the full”. (John 10:10).
At St Peter and St Paul, this is done by offering a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum so that students can experience a fullness of life through faith and education.
Our aim is to provide learners with key knowledge and skills that will help them to become responsible, independent and confident individuals who contribute to our school and wider community.
Tutor groups are organised horizontally from Year 7 to 13 to create an environment focussed upon age specific personal development, particularly around key transition points within their educational journey. Alongside the tutor system is a pastoral program where students are organised into 4 houses: Bernadette, Francis, Hugh and Teresa. The house system provides excellent opportunities to develop character through healthy competition in all subject domains, contribute to the wider community through engaging with charity activities, and to take responsibility and develop leadership roles. The house system has proved highly effective, students have greater confidence to interact and engage with students of different ages and maturity.
In order to achieve our aims we offer a broad and balanced curriculum with clear progression routes for students of all abilities through Key Stages 3 to 5. Our curriculum continually evolves in order to meet the needs of individuals and groups of students as they progress through the key stages.
