Thank you for your request for information regarding this recently advertised post. I hope you find the information below 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.


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. We are looking for teachers who have a clear pastoral commitment, able to get to know their students quickly and tailor the teaching to meet their needs.
