Welcome to St Peter’s Boys Prep School

Rector's welcome
Greg Royce

My first contact with St Peter’s was as a young teacher accompanying sports teams. The boys always seemed so much happier and more spontaneous and confident than those at the other schools I knew.

Coming from a far less well-endowed school, I was in awe of the magnificent grounds and facilities, yet the staff members were unfailingly welcoming, always treating one as an equal. There was a unique atmosphere of warm informality and professionalism.

Boys Prep  October 06, 2016 | Headmaster | Rob Macaulay - Headmaster

I am writing this article on the morning of World Teachers’ Day: 5 October.  It is interesting to reflect on how the role of the teacher has changed in our modern world. Traditionally, the teacher has been the imparter of knowledge and skills aimed at preparing the child for a place in an industrialised workplace. Numeracy and literacy were combined with general knowledge and scientific skills to become the basket of goods delivered by the teacher.

St Peter's Old Boys Cricket Match

Boys Prep Old Boys  October 06, 2016 | David Wilson - Chairman of the Old Boys

After several Cataflams and Voltaren shots to the lower back, I have managed to recover somewhat to reflect on the Old Boys cricket event last Saturday.

Following on from last year’s successful Old Boys game against the Goblins, this year we hosted another mighty cricket clash between the Old Boys of two highly regarded prep schools - ST PETER’S vs THE RIDGE. The two matches were played in buoyant spirit with both young and old - a number of festive “20 Somethings” bringing lots of banter and great fun.  One game was certainly played in a more competitive spirit whilst the “mixed ability” game enjoyed more humour and liquid refreshments.
