The Saints Community

One of the great strengths of St Peter’s College is its loyal and supportive community. Every member of the wider Saints community is invited to participate and make a contribution to the life of the School.

Our family includes more than 11,000 active and proud alumni. A strong partnership between the School and home is fostered from the time a boy enters the School, and the continuation of a close association is valued long after he leaves.

We strive to build a strong and enduring sense of community through the wonderful work of various support groups and the tireless efforts of generous individuals. Since the School’s foundation in 1847, St Peter’s College has been sustained and developed from generation to generation by wonderful and inspiring acts of philanthropy.

Contributing to Saints

Saints has benefited from a long and distinguished history of philanthropy and it remains an important part of the School today. There are many ways in which you can support the School through the St Peter’s College Foundation. The Foundation actively raises funds from current and former parents, old scholars and other members of the community.

Donations help to provide the outstanding environment in which the boys learn and provides scholarships for promising and capable boys for whom an education at Saints would otherwise be out of reach.

The Rex J Lipman Fellows Program

Through the Rex J Lipman Fellows Program, innovative speakers and thinkers visit the School to inspire boys and give a free public lecture to the wider community. It encapsulates our vision and mission for Saints to develop educated, considerate and outward-looking young men who will act responsibly for the good of the wider community.
