Strong and Lovely

St Peter’s College is a carefully constructed, morally formative community, committed to ensuring our community carries strength and love in equal measure. For over 175 years, St Peter’s College has provided an education that empowers our boys to achieve their best, encouraging them to excel as artists, athletes, and academics concurrently.

We are proud of our all-boys’ education, but we will have failed if we allow them to believe they are entering a world that is boys only. The mission of the School, defined in our School Prayer, provides a very clear outline of how to test if a behaviour, interaction, communication or relationship is appropriate in our School community. Truth, righteousness, beauty, order and reverence give all of us an accessible framework to measure our relationships, communication and behaviour. By enrolling at SPSC, your son is invited to join a brotherhood. This is not a tribal construction, but a loving brotherhood that seeks to challenge wider stereotypes. When we are looking for a definition of masculinity in a post-modern world, our School Prayer clearly outlines that our community must carry a measure of strength and love concurrently in all communication and relationships.

Normalising
the right behaviours

The real power of an all-boys’ environment is that every member of our community has a role to play in normalising the right behaviours, pathways and attributes of both learning and relationships for every student. It is an enormously powerful opportunity to cast away community stereotypes, foster creativity and build a culture of respect.

Realising
their potential

By casting away stereotypes, boys feel comfortable exploring the full range of their personalities and potential to discover their role as an artist, academic and athlete. Our extensive co-curricular offering creates an environment where boys pursue their talents and realise their potential.

Culture of Learning

Acknowledging and addressing the inherent differences in learning styles between boys and girls we tailor curriculum and teaching methods to create an environment that enables boys to succeed. Boys can develop at their own pace, exploring various subjects and interests without external pressures. This builds a culture of excellence in and out of the classroom that is both embraced and expected, countering community stereotypes. The camaraderie that forms in all-boys’ school promotes a supportive community where students encourage each other’s intellectual curiosity and personal growth.

Responsible Relationships

Our students have strong female and male role models delivering programs that teach the importance of gender equality and respect. Additionally students engage in meaningful co-educational activities with girls’ schools throughout the year. We are preparing our students to enter a world where they should expect to be working with and for women and they need to be competent and confident in dealing with all members of the community; to collaborate, be creative, serve and also lead.
