I hope you find the information on our website useful.  If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

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, with Primary accommodated at Iford and Years 7 to 13 at Southbourne. 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 children’s learning.

We are not a complacent community; all staff are keen to learn and improve, developing pedagogy through research, shared practice and innovation.

The closing date for applications is by 8.00am, Thursday 17 September. I am anticipating that interviews will take place on Wednesday 23 September.

If, you do not receive a telephone call or email from us inviting you for an interview by Tuesday 22 September, please assume that on this occasion your application was not successful. However, I would like to thank you for your interest in St Peter’s School.

I look forward to receiving your application.
