What says..

Academically up with the front-runners, with well above national average results in Sats. Parents praised the maths teaching, which adopts the Shanghai Approach, learned from visiting Chinese teachers. One mum lamented the lack of space for sports: ‘shame there isn’t more space to run and get energy out of themselves’. Year 6 enjoys a residential at Sayers Croft, which introduces caving, pond dipping and orienteering...

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since September 2021, Jane Carrington, previously interim Deputy head of Duncombe Primary School.


Admission by Westminster LA criteria: priority given to looked-after children, those baptised at St Peter’s Eaton Square church, siblings, children of staff, baptised children who attend the affiliated church and then other CofE churches. Most of the 10 children from their own nursery gain a place, but have to apply. Oversubscribed three to one, until top years, when some filter off to local prep schools. Catchment area is mostly Westminster, but some from Lambeth and Wandsworth

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

St Peter's is an inclusive school and supports pupils with a wide range of disabilities, but is not a special school. It provides for pupils with physical, emotional and learning difficulties as well as gifted and talented pupils. There is a part-time Special Educational Needs Coordinator and one additional part-time teacher with SEN as a specialism. Pupils are taught principally within mixed ability classes appropriate to their age group.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
