ROCK forms ba­sis of daily life at St Peter’s

Gloucestershire Echo - - EDUCATION CHOICES -

ST Peter’s is a car­ing school with happy stu­dents who make ex­cel­lent progress so­cially, spir­i­tu­ally and aca­dem­i­cally.

It is an over-sub­scribed co-ed­u­ca­tional school for stu­dents from 11 to 19.

Our aim is to pro­vide a high qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion in a Chris­tian en­vi­ron­ment.

Pupils learn, grow and have many op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop our core ROCK val­ues of re­spect, op­ti­mism, com­mu­nity and kind­ness as well as to par­tic­i­pate in a wide range of ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing char­ity, chap­laincy, drama, eco club, mu­sic and a wide range of sports to en­hance their aca­demic de­vel­op­ment.

All chil­dren are blessed with tal­ents and it is our job to al­low them to flour­ish.

We are very pleased that at GCSE this year sev­eral stu­dents achieved all grade 7 and above (the equiv­a­lent to all A* and A grades) and many oth­ers achieved all grade 6 and above (the equiv­a­lent to all A* to B grades).

We are a fully com­pre­hen­sive school and we are equally pleased for those stu­dents who worked hard for more mod­er­ate re­sults which are a real achieve­ment for them and which will al­low them to move on to the next stage of their ed­u­ca­tion.

Our sixth form pass rate this year was 98 per cent with stu­dents achiev­ing ex­cel­lent re­sults which en­abled them to progress to pres­ti­gious Rus­sell Group uni­ver­si­ties, in­clud­ing Bris­tol, Durham and War­wick, to study sub­jects in­clud­ing aero­space en­gi­neer­ing, bio­med­i­cine, com­puter science, his­tory, lan­guages, law and PPE (pol­i­tics, phi­los­o­phy and eco­nomics).

Oth­ers have se­cured higher level ap­pren­tice­ships with com­pa­nies in­clud­ing KPMG, Rolls Royce and Fox Jaguar.
