St Peter’s is one of the leading independent prep schools in the Lowveld, situated on a beautiful hillside in Sonheuwel Nelspruit. The school combines the best of traditional values with a modern and balanced approach to co-educational learning. As a prep school, the key focus of our activities is preparatory. Academic success is important, but our pupils are encouraged to excel in every area of achievement, including sporting and cultural pursuits. The strength of St Peter’s is its family atmosphere with education seen as a partnership between pupils, staff and parents.
Our caring staff nurture the pupils as individuals, encouraging each to become independent, creative, resourceful and confident with a strong sense of community. Whatever a pupil's talents; it is the school's aim to discover and develop them. There is a wide range of clubs and activities where pupils can bring out the best in themselves. The chapel and convent, in the middle of the school, are unique features which add value to our strong pastoral care.
I believe that this website will give you a sense of what happens at our school. You are most warmly invited to come and see us in action and, for us, every day is open day.
