The Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust of which St Peter’s CE Primary Academy is part, is the admission authority. St Peter’s CE Primary Academy is a new school which aims to serve all members of its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. The school is designated with a religious character. The school’s religious authority is the Diocese of Salisbury.
The school opened on a phased basis with the following published admissions numbers:
2020-21: The school had an admission number of 30 for entry in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, and 15 in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
2021-22: The school has an admission number of 30 for entry in Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3, and 15 in Years 4, 5 and 6. See the admissions arrangements below for more information.
The school will accordingly admit this number of pupils if there are sufficient applications. Where fewer applicants than the published admission number(s) for the relevant year group are received, the Academy Trust will offer places at the school to all those who have applied. For children who have moved onto St. Peter's Place, please contact the school directly for additional advice.
2022-23 Admissions Policy
The consultation on our admissions policy for 2022-23 has now closed.
For children who will be of Reception age in September 2022 details of how you can apply can be found at http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/schools-learning-admissions-applying.
For children who would like to join in a year group other than Reception, an in-year admission application must be made via the local authority. Further information and access to their portal can be found here.
We rely on external bodies of support to make the necessary arrangements for any appeal (both in-year and Reception 2022, 2023 etc.), including administering relevant documents and assembling an appeals panel. Timelines for appeals can be found above.
To access appeals information and forms, as well as apply for a Reception place for September 2022, please visit the Local Authority website by clicking here.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, open events at the school are limited. Please keep an eye on our Home Page where dates will be publicised. We hope that the video presentation below gives you some assistance in deciding on whether St. Peter's is the right destination for your child. We also encourage you (and your child) to watch the School Tour video on our new-joiners page. It was originally intended for pupils joining our school in September 2020 but will give you some idea of the layout of the school. Likewise, our short video prospectus will give you a good sense of the school.
