St Peter’s School, York


St Peter’s School, York

St Peter’s, established in 627 AD, is the fourth-oldest school in the entire world, with a long and distinguished history extending back. A surprising amount of outdoor space, you’d never guess it is so close to the city. Nearest to the school is the hallowed ground of the first XV rugby pitch, but there are plenty of others beyond. The school boasts 20 international rowers in the last eight years. Hockey, rowing and netball are the most popular girls’ sports but tennis, athletics, squash, swimming and usual suspects are on offer for all. Academic results are good: 87 per cent A*-B at A-level and nine Oxbridge offers last year.
