Instructions for the end of term
School year closure. The online teaching classes (homeschooling) will continue until the last day of the school year, which remains as planned on the 19th of June.
As we have done during this period, if a student requires academic or personal help, the tutor or the director of each section will organise it in a personalised way. From the 8th of June, if necessary, the Head of Section will organise a personal meeting with students and tutors.
Year 12 students have now finished their classes, except for some students who are preparing for specific UNED exams. As you know, they do not have to take the EBAU entrance examinations, and they have already submitted all the work with which the International Baccalaureate organisation will determine their qualifications.

Present and Future of St. Peter's School Project
After an atypical Easter Holiday, the world is still confronting one of the greatest threats of our generation, one that will impact upon our future lives, and surely will impact education too. Throughout our history, St. Peter’s School has been built around the care for families, students and staff, and our actions during this global crisis are essential to keep our ethos and will be remembered for years to come.
Two things we know for sure; first, that this situation will pass, let’s hope sooner rather than later. Second, that in the resulting scenery education will be more important than ever, both to ensure that as a group we have learned and improved, and individually to face the forthcoming challenges with the best opportunities.
