At the heart of all we do is a shared intellectual curiosity and a common commitment to academic excellence. But St Peter’s is also known for its warm and energetic sense of community.
St Peter’s is as varied in its people as it is in its architecture and we love the stimulating diversity of both. Being home to many talented, energetic students and academics also generates its own creative and expanding projects. The collective buzz that emerges from these enriches us all. We have a strong founding mission to make the best education available to the students of greatest potential, irrespective of background or means, and we enjoy seeing our students fulfil their potential as whole people, as well as committed students of a particular discipline during their time with us.
Previous students (‘old members’) of St Peter’s are a crucial and a very welcome part of the life-blood of the place, and it is testimony to the spirit of the college that so many retain a joyful and intensely loyal sense of belonging to St Peter’s throughout their lives. They are regularly welcomed back for fun and celebratory events, consolidating a crucial sense of continuity between St Peter’s history and our current vibrant life and work.
St Peter’s is a special place and it is a privilege to be its Master. I hope our website will help you find out what you might want to know about who we are, what we do, and the values that underpin both. If you have any questions, do be in touch.
