St Peter's cofe Middle School Aspire, Believe, Grow, Achieve
Andy Snipp Headteacher
I am delighted to welcome you to St Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church of England Middle School and I hope that this prospectus gives you an insight into school life.
Welcome to The opportunity to educate other people’s children is a privilege. At St Peter’s we take this responsibility extremely seriously. We care about the individual and pride ourselves in the warmth of a community in which all our students feel valued. We care enough to challenge our students and make the most of all we have to offer. We are aware that we are learning for the future, on the doorsteps of history, with all the specialist teaching, buildings and resources you would expect from a much larger school; we believe that St Peter’s offers the children of the Windsor area something special. In recent years our school has been judged “Good” (2017) by Ofsted, and the school’s work to promote students’ personal development and welfare is outstanding. We were pleased that our most recent SIAMS inspection found the strengthened Christian ethos at St Peter’s School is having a positive impact on students’ well being and achievement and that as a result of a comprehensive improvement strategy, attainment levels are steadily improving for all groups. We work closely with our feeder First schools. Children settle into their new routines quickly and respond well to the challenges of Year 5. Students move on to Upper Schools having reached their full potential in body, mind, heart and spirit and are well prepared for the next part of life’s journey. I look forward to meeting you and hope that you will decide that St Peter’s is the best place for your child to be educated.

We use our school values of: Wisdom, Integrity, Trust, Compassion and Fellowship to promote positive attitudes to learning and to promote the responsibility for learning and future success.
