About Us


At St Peter's Church of England Primary school, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to reach excellence within a happy, stimulating and secure environment, where care and respect for each other, their school and the wider community are paramount.

We believe that every child should be encouraged to achieve the highest standards possible, in an atmosphere where all success, great or small, is properly celebrated.

We believe that every child should learn to understand people with different needs, circumstances and beliefs in order to enable them to develop morally, culturally and spiritually, giving them the confidence to grow in responsibility and independence and equipping them for the journey of lifelong learning.

Our History

We are proud of our heritage as one of the first charity schools set up in West London. George Scott and his daughter Lucy Hannah Scott (died 1878), realised that there was an acute shortage of even the most basic education for the children of labourers who lived in the district. At that time, in Hammersmith, farm labourers, river workers and factory workers lived cheek by jowl with each other. The demands made on the children in those days meant that they were expected to help in the fields whenever necessary. Permission was given

‘For two schools, girls and infants, for children of labouring, manufacturing and trading, and other such poorer class in the said Chapel and District of Hammersmith’

The new school was opened by Lucy Hannah Scott in 1849
