What the school says...
St Peters School is one of the oldest in Europe, with a long and distinguished history extending back to 627 AD. St Peters is a wonderful place for young people to grow and develop. Set on a verdant 47 acre site, with playing fields stretching down to the river, the school is still just a few minutes walk from the lively, historic centre of York. A forward-looking school with an inspiring curriculum.
The city of York has some of the richest history in the UK. Located in the heart of the city, St Peters is easily accessed by road, rail and air. London and Manchester Airport are just two hours away by train, and the School is ten minutes from York station. We provide transport to Leeds/Bradford International Airport, less than an hour away. ...Read more
