Why Choose Us?

Firmly rooted in our community and underpinned by our mission to inspire, challenge and empower every child, we are proud that pupils at St Peter Chanel develop academically, personally, socially and spiritually. They are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and experiences they need to successfully progress through each key stage of their educational journey with us.

We are committed to developing the whole child, and have thoughtfully designed an ambitious pupil experience offer which is far-reaching, encompassing the highest quality education. It includes a wide range of support tools and an enriching programme of activities to ignite creativity, dynamism and an excitement for learning, guided by common Gospel values.
