A Rich History of Education

The Day School of the Parish of St Peter’s Glenelg was established in 1863 and catered to children in the Glenelg area for more than a century before it became St Peter’s Glenelg Anglican Grammar School.

Following the closure of neighbouring Woodlands Church of England Girls Grammar School in 1998, St Peter’s Glenelg acquired the historic Partridge Street site and moved the growing school community to the much larger campus, combining the history and traditions of both schools.

In 1999, a visionary new school was formed. St Peter’s Woodlands Grammar School opened its doors for the first time for preschool to Year 7 students.

In 2016, St Peter’s Woodlands expanded the educational offering with the opening of the Early Learning Centre, catering for children from 2 years of age.

In 2019, St Peter’s Woodlands celebrated a twenty-year milestone. With strong growth and reputation within the community, St Peter’s Woodlands is a premier educational environment for young learners today and into the future.
