St Peter & St Paul School is nestled in 7 acres of beautiful parkland and woodland with ample on-site car parking for parents and visitors. 

Nature is all around our school with bird boxes, bug houses, where rabbits and squirrels pop out to see what our children are doing; it is a wonderful space for our children to grow. 

There are acres of space for our children to play and compete with rugby pitches, football pitches, cricket pitches, rounders pitches and netball court. We offer a Forest School, where our children learn den building, exploring and campcraft.

We are surrounded by the Tapton Golf course and the CDMES model railway attraction who hold regular open days for our children to attend and enjoy.
