Most documents on this site are downloadable and printable directly from the page. However, please get in touch with the school if you have any issues obtaining a copy.

On this page, you will find several documents to help you apply for a place at St Peter's. Parents can apply for any school in any local authority, but they have to do it via their home local authority. When applying for a place in a school that is not in your home local authority, parents should check whether there are any additional supplementary forms to be completed, which would only be available from the school or the Local Authority in which the school is located. As a faith school, please be mindful that, when completing the documentation, it is crucial to complete a Supplementary Faith Form, provide evidence of your child's Baptism and return this to the school before the deadline. For admissions in September 2025, this deadline is 31st October 2024. Please note that the school will be closed for half term from Monday 21st October to Friday 25th October and will open again on Monday 28th October. Therefore, the final day for handing in a Supplementary Faith Form and obtaining a receipt from the school will be Thursday 31st October 2024. If you fail to complete a Supplementary Faith Form (including Baptism evidence) and return this to the school before the deadline date, it will result in your application being considered against lower criteria, as the Governing Body will have no information to assess your application.
