Please email to book your place. We will need your name, telephone number and email address. In the meantime, please view our EYFS Video Tour (link at the foot of this page).

Please note for the September 2022 intake onwards the admission number for St Peter's CE Primary is 30 and due to Infant Class Size legislation the EYFS class for September 2022 cannot exceed the class size limit of 30 children with a qualified teacher. We currently have some split infant classes as our previous admission number was 35.


Both paragraphs 2 and 4 of our oversubscription criteria makes reference to regular church attendance.  Due to COVID 19 Liverpool Diocese, on behalf of the governing board, applied to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator for the following variation to our original published criteria.

In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship

You can view our 21-22 admission arrangements at the bottom of this page

Please note: St Peter’s Church is now open for worship. Full details of the service arrangements which are considered as supporting evidence for higher priority ‘regular church attendance’ applications of the School’s oversubscription criteria can be found at
