Junior School


The Junior School is a vibrant and contemporary learning environment for young and inquiring minds from Reception through to Year 6.

At St Peter’s Girls, we recognise that quality junior schooling is the key to building a strong learning foundation. Students experience contemporary classroom learning, responsive and personalised wellbeing, specialist teacher programs and an extensive range of co and extra-curricular options, including a wide variety of music and sport.

The Junior School is led by Marika Taylor. Marika is an experienced educational leader with an unwavering commitment to girls’ education and inspiring excellence in teaching and learning. With over 20 years of teaching and leadership experience, Marika brings great insight and expertise to Saints Girls. 

She is dedicated to nurturing every student’s academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development. She believes in cultivating curiosity, creativity and a rich love for learning, supporting both students and educators to excel. Her passionate belief in holistic girls’ education aligns closely with our School values and commitment to inspiring students to become women of character and influence.

Marika has presented at national educational conferences, led dynamic academic research projects and is currently shaping future-focused educational outcomes for girls.

Based on the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), our Junior School Curriculum approaches all teaching and learning through flexible and responsive methodologies. All students complete six Units of Inquiry throughout the year where they are encouraged to become probing and knowledgeable thinkers and communicators who engage in balanced and reflective risk-taking.

They study languages right from the outset, taught by the same highly trained specialist teachers who mentor our older girls.

At St Peter’s Girls, we provide a nurturing and empowering community wellbeing program. Our values will drive your daughter’s personal growth and social responsibility through service, challenge and a maturing awareness of the world around us. We help her to understand the importance of caring not only for herself and her friends, but also showing compassion for the local and global community.

The Junior School experience at St Peter’s Girls allows students to thrive academically while exploring their passions beyond the classroom walls. It prepares them for the next step in their schooling lives, creating a seamless transition into our Middle School.

Mid-Year Reception

St Peter’s Girls’ School offers parents the choice of two intakes per year for our Reception classes. The Mid-Year Reception class, commencing in Term 3 (July), is designed for girls turning five years of age from May through to September. We believe that girls at this age are ready for school and can make the transition from a play-based learning environment, such as our ELC, to reap the rewards of extra school time at this crucial learning stage.
