St Peter's Anglican Grammar is commencing secondary education with Year 7 in 2022, becoming a full Pre-Kindergarten - Year 12 school by 2027. We have the rare opportunity of a blank canvas to develop a secondary experience that is different from other schools.
Research continues to show that students learn in a variety of ways and flexibility in approach is key.
Centrally located in the heart of Campbelltown, just a short stroll from the Railway Station, our home campus will be the base for student learning in secondary, acknowledging that our students will access facilities and spaces across the South West.
St Peter’s Anglican Grammar is an interested school preparing to apply for candidacy to deliver the MYP (Middle Years Programme) of the International Baccalaureate, alongside the PYP (Primary Years Programme) in Pre-Kindergarten – Year 6. It is also out intention that will offer students the choice of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) or the Higher School Certificate (HSC) in Year 11 and 12.
Students will learn in a balance of disciplinary, interdisciplinary, collaborative and independent opportunities. Collaboration time will occur daily as a timetabled session for students to work with one another and staff as required on skill development, specific projects, assessment, understanding or clarification.
We have information sessions planned regularly.
We look forward to the evolution of our school and your interest.
Absolutely. St Peter’s has always been and will always be a Christian School. Biblical Studies and attendance at Chapel will be compulsory and Christian perspectives considered in all learning areas.
St Peter’s seeks to employ practising protestant teachers across all areas.
The fee structure is being finalised with the Schools’ Council and will be advised in due course. It will not be too dissimilar to our sister school and competitive with other independent schools in the South West.
St Peter’s Anglican Grammar will provide and manage devices from Year 7, which will be incorporated into the fee structure.
Yes. A small number of scholarships are available in the following areas - Christian Leadership Scholarships, Academic Scholarships, Music Scholarships, Indeigenous Scholarships and Future Thinkers scholarships will be available.
Scholarships for 2022 have closed. Scholarships for 2023 are available and applications are currently being received. For further information, please refer to our Scholarship page on our website.
The School will be primarily based at our South West City Campus (Campbelltown) conveniently located in the centre of the Campbelltown CBD. Whilst the core of learning will be based on this campus, the School intends to leverage other learning spaces in and around the CBD of Campbelltown in future years, both whilst building works are being undertaken, and on an ongoing basis.
Whilst our home campus will be at our current site, it will not be uncommon for Science and other learning areas to be occurring offsite, where appropriate. This will be the case for the majority of PDHPE and Sport also.
We will utilise our school buses as needed, facilitating our students working and learning in a variety of suitable and appropriate locations.
Realistically, there certainly is. In 2015, the Council undertook a comprehensive masterplan to highlight the feasibility of a Prep - Year 12 campus on our current site. Three and four storey buildings, designed with flexibility and future focused learning in mind, will cater for our growing student population.
It is expected the first stage will commence in 2022 and be ready for occupation in late 2023. Alongside modifications to some existing buildings, for example, the library, we will pivot our current stock to cater for our needs.
The School will work with contractors to minimise disruption during building programmes and will liaise with families and the wider community in this regard.
A camp for Year 7 will occur in the first weeks of the year, to enable current and new students to get to know one another and establish a culture of connection and support, amongst staff and students.
We are working with some providers to ensure our outdoor education experience continues to evolve and grow, with the expectation that there will be choice in our compulsory outdoor education programme in later years.
The camp programme will build on the scaffold commencing in primary years.
St Peter’s Anglican Grammar will particpate in Macarthur Independent Schools Association (MISA). This will be supplemented with a recreational and skill development based sporting programme which will include activities such as surf school, rock climbing and abseiling. Again, being able to utilise facilities in local settings will be important in this regard.
Southern Anglican Schools Association (SASSA) is our pathway for carnivals and elite sports.
Our school carnivals will be extensions of the primary carnival in the first two years, growing to have separation in the future.
St Peter’s Anglican Grammar has an excellent reputation in the musical arena and will continue to focus on this. Initially, pivoting on the current primary opportunities, students will have opportunities in bands, choirs, orchestras at a training, junior, senior and eventually advanced levels. Ensembles will be created to encourage and provide performance opportunities.
The School will work to develop a music academy with extensions to our current peripatetic offerings.
Co-curricular groups will be offered in Christian Development (Crusaders), Music at all levels, Chess, Technology, coding, robotics, and a host of service opportunities within the local community.
St Peter’s Anglican Grammar’s uniform will be formal, modern and appropriate. The new uniform will be available for Year 7 students 2022.
Any change to current uniforms will be introduced gradually and with consideration to limiting the impact on families.
We have appointed the Head of the Middle School and three (3) full time equivalent teachers in secondary in 2022 which discipline they are qualified and experienced to teach.
Some teachers may teach across the School in their area of expertise, eg Biblical Studies, Music, Art, PDHPE.
Head of the Middle School
Classes can go up to 28 students, although have traditionally been smaller than this.
We anticipate two (2) classes in Year 7 in 2022 - subject to interest, and expect that this will grow to three (3) classes in 2023.
We will differentiate and provide for our students, with some grading in areas including English, Maths and Science.
As indicated above, we hope to expand and renovate our existing Library in 2022, as well as accessing facilities in the local area. Science will likely be taught offsite (possibly at the university) or another schools whilst facilities are built.
A modular building for STEAM, Music, Music Tuition and Art will be installed by the beginning of 2022.
Collaborative or Collab Time - will be a timetabled session each day for students to work independently, or collaboratively, with teacher and Teacher Assistant assistance on goal setting, assessments, homework or revision. Scaffolded and supported, our Learning Enhancement Team will also use this as an opportunity to check in with students.
St Peter’s Anglican Grammar will build on the excellent reputation we have for catering for the diverse learning and social needs of our students. Initially falling under Mrs Nash’ responsibility, support will be provided in learning support, enrichment, EAL/D and Counselling services. In time, the Secondary School will have its own Learning Enhancement department.
Students will commence at 8:30am and finish at 3:15pm. We anticipate having 6 x 55 minute periods each day with recess, lunch and afternoon breaks, allowing sufficient time to transition from one period to the next. Students will also have additional timetabled Collab time and House Tutor time on a daily basis.
Students in Year 7 may access an after school study centre from 3:30pm - 4:30pm (Monday - Thursday). Co-curricular groups will also be conducted during this time.
St Peter’s Anglican Grammar is an International Baccalaureate World School authorised to deliver the PYP (Primary Years Programme) in Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6.
We intend to apply for authorisation to offer the MYP (Middle Years Programme). The MYP sits alongside the NSW requirements with a balance on disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches. We will focus on skill development, teach conceptually and help build international mindedness.
For more information will be made available for families as this progresses. At this time, it should be known that St Peter’s Anglican Grammar intends to deliver the PYP, the MYP and provide the option of the IB Diploma Programme or the HSC.
Student Voice Week (SVW) will be a week for students to enact their learning within the community. All students in secondary will have the opportunity of undertaken work that contributes positively to our society and community.
