St Peter’s Preparatory School is non-selective yet, in 2021, 50% of our Year 8 pupils sat the Exeter School entrance exam and all of them were offered places with one achieving an Academic Scholarship.

The rest of the Year 8 leavers of 2021 secured senior school places at Wellington School, Taunton School and Blundell’s School, with 67% of these entering these boarding schools with scholarships (Academic, Art, Music and Sports).

Life at St Peter’s

The majority of our pupils leave us at Year 8; however, we do have other leaving transition points, when pupils join selective schools such as Colyton Grammar School.

Children at St Peter’s study the following subjects: Art & Design, Drama, English, French, Games & physical education, Geography, History, Information & communications technology, Mathematics, Music, Personal, social, health & citizenship education, Religion & philosophy, Science and Spanish.

Children are given the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways: through exploration and research; to break down subject boundaries and to acquire a mix of knowledge and skills.
