2015 Section 48 Inspection - Rated as Outstanding.
Welcome To Our Academy
Whilst it has been another extremely busy year, I am thrilled to say that it has also been another extremely successful year.
We have been proud to have welcomed a wide range of visitors to our school including some who have carried out inspections. It is a pleasure to share with you just a taste of the positive feedback that we have received as a result of these visits and inspections; below you will find an extract taken from the Section 48 report into religious provision at St Peter’s. It is wonderful to see the hard work that goes on in our school, by both students and staff, recognised by others.
“St Peter’s is an Outstanding school. Witness to Catholic Life and tradition permeate the whole school and Catholic ethos is clearly evident in relationships between all stakeholders. Students are proud of their school and readily involve themselves in the many opportunities for supporting others through work, prayer and example. Standards in RE have improved year on year for the past 3 years and projected achievement for 2015 indicates further improvement. The progress of disadvantaged students in RE is equal to and, in some cases, exceeds that of their peers. Leaders and managers at all levels are highly effective in managing and developing the Catholic life of the school including provision for Religious Education. The school self-evaluation accurately positions the school on its journey and clearly sets out its strengths and areas for development.”
Section 48 Inspection, 28-29th April 2015

MAT Event - Mock Trial
St Peter's students have recently competed in The Magistrate Mock Trial Court National Finals. Accompanied by Mr Murray, Mrs Rafferty and Mr Hanrahan, the St Peter's Mock Trial team travelled to Birmingham where they participated in the National Finals. Mrs Hanrahan, Mr Bell and Mrs Hewitt along with other staff and parents travelled to Birmingham to support the team. The Finals were situated in the hugely prestigious centre of excellence Birmingham Courts, which is one of the largest historic courts in England. The team had to deliver two separate cases. Students had been prepared by Mike Teate, Principal Clerk to Teesside Magistrates Court, and Mr Murray to take on the roles of magistrates, lawyers, court usher, and legal advisers. Their performance in both cases was deemed outstanding by everyone who watched them perform.
Big Sleep Out
By Chloe Mudie
On Friday 3rd to Saturday 4th July, 60 students, 9 staff and a group of visitors participated in the Big Sleep Out. The event was to raise money for the Teesside Philanthropic Foundation which helps people who are homeless and people recovering from addiction. During the event some students played football with Middlesbrough Homeless FC. Also during the event there were speeches from people involved with the foundation about homelessness.
The Big Sleep Out included candle making, cross making/decorating, a disco, a film and midnight mass. Also during the Big Sleep Out the students and staff were treated to a disco. Many students have said that they would love to do it again. It's safe to say everyone involved has taken away something from it.
School Food Champion
Miss Johnson, St Peter’s Catering Teacher, has been selected as a ’School Food Champion’ as part of a Department for Education programme to teach students about health and improve the take up of healthy school meals.
As part of this initiative, Miss Johnson has asked students to apply to be ‘Student School Food Champions’ to influence the school dinners offered at St Peter’s and to encourage more healthy food choices for all students across the school.
Applications have now closed and the Student School Food Champions will be announced in September.
