St Peter's Girls' School is a leading private ELC to Year 12 Anglican and International Baccalaureate World School located in Stonyfell, just 5km from Adelaide's CBD. We offer students a unique opportunity to start their educational journey in our ELC and progress through our Junior, Middle, and Senior Schools on the one campus. This brings a strong sense of community community community as we work together to help each girl reach her potential. Whether it be through academics, sport, performing arts, public speaking, or a combination of disciplines, Saints Girls are well-rounded individuals who are inspired to shine both in and outside the classroom.
The School was opened in 1894 by the Community of the Sisters of the Church, pioneering English women who sailed to a city they knew little about on the other side of the world. They arrived with very few possessions, but what they brought to our shores was priceless: a vision for quality girls' education. The School was established in North Adelaide and moved to the Stonyfell site in 1957.
It was managed by the Community of the Sisters of the Church until 1986 when a change in a vocation within the community-community community resulted in the Sisters creating a different governance model and gifting the School to a Board of Governors. As St Peter's Girls approaches its 125th anniversary, our pupils are inspired to follow our founding sisters' footsteps as women of courage, compassion, and creativity.
Our Mission At St Peter's Girls' School provides outstanding educational opportunities for students from Early Learning to Year 12 in an engaging, collaborative, and dynamic environment. Since 1894, the School has built upon our founding Sisters' legacy, who were brave pioneers of girls' education. Their precision and steadfast determination continue to resonate with students today. Guided by their example, our holistic education encourages students to challenge, serve, and lead with integrity and imagination in a global society. Our Vision St Peter's Girls' School: Inspiring women of character and influence. Our Values are:
Courageous pursuing opportunities with confidence and strength
Creative igniting our imagination to innovate and excel
Compassionate connecting with the global community-community community through respect and service
