The School and Nursery enjoy beautiful, extensive grounds on one leafy campus close to the heart of Peterborough
The Peterborough School is a member of the Woodard group of schools, which is the largest collection of Church of England schools in England and Wales and one of the principal educational charities in the UK.
Founded in 1895, and formerly known as Westwood House and Peterborough High School, it is a day school educating young people in a caring community. The campus is situated in 11 acres of beautiful grounds close to the city centre and pupils, staff and parents enjoy its safe environment.
Since September 2010 boys have been admitted into Years 7 and 12, making us now fully co-educational. The Governors of the School announced this programme of expansion to build on many years of outstanding success.
