Our Story

At St Peter’s Woodlands the difference is extraordinary.

We are relentless in seeking to find the remarkable in every child. Education at St Peter’s Woodlands is a rare and inspirational experience dedicated to children aged two to twelve.

Since 1999 we have been championing early years and primary education, providing an inclusive and nurturing learning experience. St Peter’s Woodlands is a community where inquisitive minds are encouraged to grow, and children can thrive in a faith-based environment dedicated to their individual educational needs. St Peter’s Woodlands is an Anglican school, underpinned by the teachings of a progressive Christian church.

Nestled in the heart of beachside Glenelg, 20 minutes southwest of Adelaide’s CBD, St Peter’s Woodlands is a blend of rich history and outstanding modern facilities. Our unique setting is a place where learning is an adventure and curiosity comes to life.

We support children on their learning journey through the delivery of an advanced curriculum created specifically for the early and primary years. Our commitment to deliver exceptional teaching, including the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program, extensive extra-curricular opportunities and dedicated learning support prepares children for life-long learning.

At the heart of St Peter’s Woodlands sits a warm community, dedicated to ensuring every child has a sense of belonging and endless opportunities to explore. The collaborative partnership between children, staff and parents, together with the wider community, is a valuable experience contributing to the success and positive wellbeing of every child.

Through our devoted staff, our three core values of Wonder, Courage and Respect are embedded throughout life at St Peter’s Woodlands. We believe these values equip our children with the foundations needed to thrive when facing an unpredictable tomorrow.

Strengthened by our rich history spanning over 156 years, St Peter’s Woodlands is a dynamic, coeducational, independent Anglican school. We are excited about our future and look forward to welcoming you into the St Peter’s Woodlands community.
