Welcome to St Peter’s, a school where each child can experience kindness and care while reaching their full capability across academia, performing arts, service, culture and sport.
We are proud to be one of New Zealand’s leading independent schools offering a quality education based on strong Christian values. As a day and boarding school, St Peter’s students join us from all parts of New Zealand and from around the world. Our residential living for students and boarding house families strengthens our sense of community. The ‘sisterhood’ and ‘brotherhood’ in boarding provide a safe home away from home experience while enabling strong friendships and relationships to thrive.
Our Christian values of respect, service before self, commitment, love, and being kind to others are underpinned across the many opportunities students can explore as part of their learning journey at St Peter’s. As an Anglican affiliated school, we place a high value on teaching students what it means to be kind, empathetic, adaptive, and accepting of difference. Our Wellbeing Curriculum is bespoke – developed especially for our context to enable students to learn and develop tools for their ‘kete’ which will serve them well in life beyond school. Our aspiration is to grow resilience, grit, and kindness in every child based on a strength-based approach.
Our teaching staff is second to none, always taking the time to go the extra mile for each student. Our teachers support personalised learning to meet students' needs to enable each child to thrive throughout their academic journey, enabling them to know each child and their interests well. We offer limitless learning opportunities which ensure learning is engaging and exciting as students progress through each year level. Both the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) are pathways that cater to different approaches to learning and both qualifications achieve outstanding results.
Many teachers also support students in their pursuit of sporting, service, performing arts, or cultural activities. The wider offering of quality visual arts, performing arts, cultural and sports programmes mean students have the opportunity to develop holistically. This approach enables students to have different experiences which in turn develop their character. 21st Century living requires our young people to be equipped with responsiveness and adaptability skills, digital acumen, and relational capabilities – these are explicitly woven across our curriculum by our exceptionally talented teachers, coaches, and tutors.
Many visitors to our school have spoken with me about what they notice when they tour our school. They mention -
We work hard to ensure every child is safe, happy and learning. Our Pastoral Care framework is extensive and includes fourteen Deans, a Director of Wellbeing, three counsellors, three nurses, two Future Pathways advisers, eight House Directors, and two Chaplains. Each Dean oversees Learning Group Coaches who support, mentor and coach their students at a particular year level. This model provides small adult/student ratios meaning students gain closer care and support. We want each student to feel and be comfortable in their ‘own skin’. Integrated through our Pastoral Care framework are our service-learning and community engagement learning. We believe every student benefits from serving others.
Enabling students to grow to be the best they can be is something we aspire to do for every child here at St Peter’s. Your child is important to us and I look forward to welcoming them to St Peter’s on their very first day.
