Visual and Performing Arts

We have a rich and strong tradition in musical studies and performing arts with a diverse offering that includes music (solo and ensemble), drama and visual arts.


In the senior years, the academic focus sharpens with a diverse and broad curriculum designed to meet the intellectual demands of contemporary society.

Students have access to excellent facilities, technology and specialist teachers to explore ideas, develop practical skills and enhance their understanding of the world.

In Years 11 and 12 we offer the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma program and students can choose from a wide range of subjects. Boys and their families are encouraged to select the program that best suits their needs and aspirations.

Celebrate our Year 12 Results

In 2021, 11% of all St Peter’s College students attained an ATAR of 99 or above placing them in the top 1% of the nation. In addition, the median ATAR achieved by SPSC students was 91.23; the highest median in the past seven years. Our outstanding results reflect the incredible determination of students, the support of their families, and the passion and skill of our staff.
