St Peter's School

As the world’s fourth oldest school, founded in 627 AD, St Peter’s combines a long tradition of academic rigour within a focused learning community, with a lively, modern approach to education. The sporting, artistic, intellectual and cultural opportunities at the school are inspiring, stimulating both participation and achievement at the highest levels.

Owing to the restricted nature of the St Peter’s School campus, traffic control and parking are extremely difficult to manage. Since the campus is also shared with pedestrians, strict rules have to be observed for everyone’s safety.  Please only use marked bays at the drop off area in front of Queens. The dark cobbled areas are crossing points and must be kept clear. Pedestrians will be instructed to use these crossing areas.

We encourage cycling to school where it is safe to do so.  Covered racks can be found beside the dining hall on the Scott Block side, next to the Clifton / Grove House lawn, and behind the Queen’s building.  Racks without cover can be found behind the Memorial Hall and near the St Olave’s entrance.  We are aiming to increase capacity for bike parking as demand grows.
