Most documents on this site are downloadable and printable directly from the page. However, please contact the school if you have any issues obtaining a copy.
On this page, you will find several documents to help you apply for a place at St Peter's. Parents can apply for any school in any local authority, but they have to do it via their home local authority. When applying for a place in a school that is not in your home local authority, parents should check whether there are any additional supplementary forms to be completed, which would only be available from the school or the Local Authority in which the school is located. As a faith school, please be mindful that, when completing the documentation, it is crucial to complete a Supplementary Faith Form, provide evidence of your child's Baptism, and return this to the School before the deadline. For admissions in September 2024, this deadline is 31st October 2023. Please note that the school will be closed for half term from Monday 23rd October to Friday 27th October and will open again on Monday 30th October. Therefore, the final day for handing in a Supplementary Faith Form and obtaining a receipt from the school will be Tuesday, 31st October. Failure to complete a Supplementary Faith Form (including Baptism evidence) and return this to the School before the deadline date results in your application being considered against lower criteria, as the Governing Body will have no information to assess your application.
Appeals for the typical year of entry (Year 7) are arranged each year generally according to the following timetable. The dates may vary depending on whether the offer date falls on a weekend and may also differ slightly from those given by each of the Local Authorities:
- Secondary offer date: 1 March
- Appeals to be lodged by 30 March
- Appeals to be heard: 18 June or soon after
Appeals will be heard as soon as reasonably practicable following the appeal deadline. Appeals resulting from in-year admission applications will be heard on a date to be arranged within 30 school days of the appeal form being received by the Education Department at the Archdiocese or as soon as possible after that.
