Welcome to St Peter and St Paul School

St Peter & St Paul School has held a very special place at the heart of the historic market town of Chesterfield’s community for over 70 years. As a non-selective school for boys and girls we deliver an excellent and bespoke education for all our children, which is why our school is the perfect choice for your child - providing an investment for life at exceptional value for money.

We are the highest ranked Independent school in Derbyshire in The Sunday Times Parent Power list and achieve the highest Key Stage 2 results of any independent school in Derbyshire.

Academic rigour and high expectations underpin all we do and our dedicated and enthusiastic staff deliver subject specialist teaching. Small class sizes and close pastoral support, from Reception through to Year 6, ensure that each child fulfils their academic potential whilst enjoying their learning in an inspirational, challenging, safe and exciting environment.

In our extensive grounds, including our Forest School and sports facilities, children can explore the wider environment. This fires young minds and imaginations whilst reinforcing and extending classroom learning.

Girls and boys are also encouraged to be active, responsible, independent learners and school citizens making the most of the many varied leadership and representative opportunities available to them. We ensure that all of our children are ready to meet the challenges and demands awaiting them in the next stage of their education and beyond. We are immensely proud of our unique Life and Leadership Skills programme which runs throughout the school.

Please take a moment to read the information and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to come and see us.
