Upper School

Years 6, 7 and 8 inspire and challenge pupils.

At St Peter’s Prep School in Devon, children progress to upper school in Year 6 and will navigate independently around the site for all lessons. Classes will be led by expert, specialist teachers for each subject, ensuring a focused and high-quality education for our students.

Pupils will achieve much in their academic journey; Spanish is taught alongside French, which will strengthen cognitive skills and result in higher academic success, encourage a positive outlook towards other cultures and languages, and allow greater opportunities for your child to function within a modern globalised world.

Upper School at St Peter’s Prep is an invaluable experience that will promote the growth of leadership skills and opportunities for your child.

“The pupils are modestly self-confident and resilient. They grow in self-esteem and are well-prepared for the next steps in learning and life.”
ISI Inspection Report, March 2020.
