Many students will excel academically  but many seek to become work ready and with the extensive Trade Training facilities and courses at St Peter’s we are ideally placed to assist our students from school straight into work.

Modern learning spaces

Our classrooms are new or modernised, and are air-conditioned to enable the best conditions for student learning. Our modern classroom environments enable St Peter’s to ensure our learners are aspirational, and above all, responsible for their learning. They strive to build positive relationships which are trusting, respectful and authentic. They understand that their success as learners is founded on positive attitudes, strength of character and a commitment to achieving their best. St Peter’s learners celebrate their personal success and encourage the success of those around them who also strive for excellence. Our community believes that an emphasis on learning, without a commensurate focus on wellbeing, diminishes the potential of all learners to be successful and fulfilled individuals, now and in to the future.
