Safe and Inclusive Community
At the heart of our School’s identity lies a strong sense of community and a commitment to our core values. St Peter’s College thrives because of the collective contributions of our students, parents, staff, and old scholars. We are uncompromising in being a safe and inclusive learning community respectful of diverse backgrounds of race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and nationality and are committed to being a place where everyone feels accepted and welcome.
Across the past 176 years, generations of students have passed through our gates, fostering a sense of belonging within an extended school community. Our rich history expands our community well beyond our walls and fields, establishing connections with individuals nationally and internationally.
Our School is enriched and strengthened by our diverse community:
- There are 43 different countries of birth for parents of our students
- Just over 80% of students were born in Australia
- 26 different faiths or religious denominations make up our School community
- Our boarders hail from 52 regional country towns and 22 international cities
Because we are Anglican we are inclusive and invite people of other faiths, or none, to join our community.
Our team of dynamic and innovative staff are passionate advocates of an all boys’ education and each plays a valuable role in realising our vision to be an exceptional community of learning.
