Enrolment Enquiry

To learn more about St Peter's Girls' School, request a prospectus today.

St Peter’s Girls’ School is an ELC to Year 12 Anglican and International Baccalaureate World School, located in Stonyfell, just 6km from the Adelaide CBD.

The School has a co-educational Early Learners’ Centre and approximately 840 students from the Early Learners’ Centre to Year 12 on its single campus, which is surrounded by a conservation park. The team at St Peter’s Girls includes teaching staff, administrative staff, support staff and many coaches, tutors and other specialists.

St Peter’s Girls is not a selective school. We do not choose our students on the basis of academic merit, and this serves to highlight our ongoing record of academic achievement. Year after year, our results are consistently among the top performing schools in the country. This would be impossible without our experienced, dedicated and committed team of educators.

We ensure that our teachers are committed to nurturing the students’ specific talents and strengths. Our teachers model the behaviour, respect and values they instill in their students. They are confident, grounded, reliable, inspiring and knowledgeable leaders who your daughter can look up to. Our teachers foster students’ curiosity and inherent joy in discovery because they themselves are curious and love to learn. They provide a secure environment where your daughter can feel safe to experiment and take calculated risks. Regular professional development ensures our teachers are always at the forefront of new methodologies and techniques.
