About ST Peters Prep School

As Head, Charlotte Johnston, explains in her TV interview (see below): “It is very important to me that the children enjoy their time at school. I really believe that they learn best when they are happy and when they have a really wonderful relationship with their teachers.” Our three Cs of Courtesy, Consideration and Common Sense are at the heart of what we do. The children’s behaviour is excellent and the school produces warm, confident and impressive young people. We are proud of our independence which leads us to placing children, after St Peter’s, in the right senior schools from a huge range. We should be delighted to meet you for a visit and a tour and we do hope you choose to start your child’s educational journey at St Peter’s. Please call 01395 280335 to make an appointment for a tour and to meet our Head, Mrs Charlotte Johnston.
