Years 7 and 8

The Middle Years program operates within the Senior School for boys in Years 7 and 8.

The redeveloped Pentreath Building, opened in 2016, has been designed to ensure a seamless transition to Senior School life and the innovative spaces ensure boys have room to learn, collaborate and play. Boys are educated together in a flexible learning environment tailored specifically to their needs. Students are nurtured in a small learning community and we place great importance on our pastoral care approach.

Pastoral Care and Houses

As part of our commitment to wellbeing, the boys are cared for and nurtured through our pastoral care program and in their Houses. St Peter’s College has a strong House tradition with ten Houses in the Senior School, including a specific House for our boarders.


All Senior School boys participate in sports and can choose from an extensive list of summer and winter sports. We offer more than 20 sports, held in our world-class facilities which include seven ovals, a hockey pitch, 10 tennis courts, sports centre with swimming pool and full gymnasium.

Outdoor Education

From Year 4 all students participate in the outdoor education program, undertaking a series of journeys in a wilderness environment that help to build confidence and resilience. In Years 7 and 8, boys hike, cycle and climb in Chowilla National Park, Katarapko National Park and the Grampians National Park.
