St Peter’s is a Catholic school with a strong Christian ethos which underpins all we do. We are also an Academy, jointly sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth and the De La Salle Order – an international organisation which has been running schools for over 300 years.


The School consists of two sites, Year 7 to Year 13 are based at Southbourne, and our Primary phase at Iford, (currently Year R to Year 4) as St Peter’s becomes an All Through school. It is a school with a tradition of success, oversubscribed every year and benefitting from a deservedly positive reputation in the local community. Relationships with families are affirming and constructive, with parents and carers keen to support the school and the child’s learning. We are not a complacent community; all staff are keen to learn and improve, developing pedagogy through research, shared practice and innovation.


We therefore seek individuals who are committed to comprehensive and inclusive education, to developing their practice through collaboration with colleagues and to delivering high standards and success through high expectations. We seek to appoint staff who are comfortable with the Catholic ethos of the school and able to support our core values.
