The St Peter’s Seven-Year Student Journey provides a continuous and progressive educational pathway from Year 7 to 13. Believing in the immense potential of young people, this journey is intentionally elevated and aspirational.

This journey broadens horizons and brightens prospects, lighting an aspirational pathway to success for our students.
