Pupil Leadership

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it’  
                                                                                                                                           Proverbs 22:6 

We value all of the children in our school as every one of us is unique and can be a leader, this is why we have our apple tree in the entrance hall with photos of every child in our school. We believe it is important for the pupils at St. Peter’s to know they are part of a family and that they are supported to be who God created them to be.


Pupil voice is at the heart of everything we do and pupils are regarded, and see themselves, as leaders. Through courageous advocacy, our many and varied pupil leadership opportunities and our public speaking curriculum, we encourage leadership but also endeavour to give pupils the skills with which to do it successfully.  

Our new pupil leadership groups for 2023-24 will be appointed shortly and we will add their group photos to this page as soon as we can.
