As one of the oldest schools in the world, St Peter’s School, York, combines a rich heritage with outstanding academic achievement.

The St Peter’s School Foundation, encompassing Clifton School and Nursery, St Olave’s School and St Peter’s School, provides its pupils with a stimulating and varied education from age three.

St Olave’s offers small classes, unrivalled facilities and an array of academic and co-curricular opportunities. Specialist subject teaching is introduced in the final three years, giving pupils the best possible preparation for the transition to St Peter’s itself.

Together, the schools provide the ideal environment for pupils to succeed – St Peter’s achieves
outstanding results, with half of all leavers progressing to further study at Russell Group and elite UK and international universities.

Alongside such academic success, pupils are encouraged to explore interests outside the classroom through sports, the arts, and activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, Combined Cadet Force and Community Action group.

For those families wishing to enrich their child’s education further, boarding is available from age ten at St Olave’s. Boarding at St Olave’s and St Peter’s is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.
