About the School
St. Peter's School is a one form entry co-educational voluntary aided Church of England primary school within the Manchester Diocese. We cater for children aged 3 to 11 years. The school has provision for 236 children and 30 part time Nursery places, 30 Reception, [The Foundation Stage] 60 Infants [Key Stage 1] and 120 Juniors [Key Stage 2].
The building and site are owned by Manchester Diocese. The present school building was opened in 1972, however the school has a long history. The school's trust deeds belong to St. Peter's Church. This trust first built the Welbeck Street School in 1835 and later Victoria Street School in 1871. The present school is pleasantly situated in spacious grounds. We have two hard play surfaces surrounded by landscaped areas and a playing field.
Within the main building there are two Foundation Stage classrooms [Nursery and Reception], two Key Stage 1 classes [Years 1 and 2] and 4 Key Stage 2 classes [Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.] In both the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 departments there are large central areas.
The school has a shared library, a play area, musical equipment and an art and craft area. There is a spacious hall which is used for Collective Worship, PE, drama, music and dining. The school also has the use of the facilities and all-weather multi-sports pitch at Oxford Park.
