School History

St Peters was originally Infant Jesus Preparatory in Somerset West. Leslé Brent took over after the retirement of the previous owner and moved the school to the Strand to afford leaners from the poorer communities an opportunity to private schooling.

Today the school has a maximum of 80 leaners with an average of about 10 learners per a grade, thus ensuring focused individual assistance where needed

St Peters Academy is a vibrant and highly effective Christian based multicultural school that is valued as an integral part of its extreme diverse community.
