I have come in order that you might have life, life in all its fullness – John 10:10

As a result of our existing Headteacher moving on to a larger Headship, the Governing Board is excited to offer this rare opportunity to appoint a new Headteacher to lead our successful, happy, and nurturing school. At St Peter's we make learning irresistible, through providing a safe and stimulating environment and by promoting high academic standards. We encourage curiosity and inspire a lifelong love of learning for all our children.
Our popular primary school, situated in the historic, seaside village of Heysham, is an oversubscribed, one form entry school, much loved and respected by pupils, staff, parents and carers, and the local community.

St. Peter's was rated ‘Good’ by OFSTED in November 2018. In March 2022, an ‘Excellent’ Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) stated: 'Widespread application of the school’s deeply theological Christian vision results in day to day transformational education.' At St Peter's, a team of highly motivated and experienced educators, are committed to providing our pupils with invigorating and stimulating educational, social, and moral experiences that they will remember for a lifetime. We want everyone in our school family to flourish and live life in all its fullness.

With our Deputy Headteacher taking up her own headship in January 2023, this post also offers the Headteacher the unique opportunity to influence the direction of the senior leadership team. The Governors will seek the Headteacher's input on this future appointment, to provide them with the best possible support in their new role.
