We are fortunate to have two distinctive “church schools” closely associated with St Peter’s. This association between church and school life asks some responsibility of the parish and congregation in contributing to the education of these young people, supporting staff and assisting in the daily running of school.
Both Victoria Infants and Thomas Coram are “Voluntary Aided” Schools. This means the school is owned by the church of England, a majority of the governors are appointed by St Peter’s Church, the teachers are appointed and employed by the governing body, the cost of repairs and capital projects is raised by the governing body with 90% grant from the DfES, religious education and worship are distinctively Anglican (Church of England) and the governing body is the admissions authority.
At St Peter’s we celebrate our responsibility, but also the opportunity to participate fully in our church schools, to offer encouragement and remain true to our Christian values to seek the best for all people.
