At St. Peter's, we concentrate our intentions on our Mission Statement and six ‘Guiding Principles’.
We believe these are clear statements of intent that both keep us focused on what is important and allow us to judged in terms of attaining the level of effectiveness that our principles challenge us to achieve.
If you visit St. Peter’s we believe you will be able to see and/or sense clear evidence of our principles in practice.
