All Saints RC School & St Peter‘s School
All Saints GROUP Jack, a “native“ and former student of the school, gave us some secret information… We met him on the bus on the way to the school - a good start!
All Saints RC School General information –2 large separate buildings, an old convent and a pension –100 new students every year –focus on language and art –good behaviour = iPod –strict rules on hair, jewellery, make-up –uniform not in 6th form
All Saints RC School A Catholic School: –“All Saints is a Catholic school guided by the teachings, traditions, spirituality and sacraments of the Catholic Church and committed to Christian Gospel values. We look to Christ for leadership and inspiration and our school community is characterised by his example of love and service.”
All Saints RC School A Language College –French, German and Spanish are traditionally taught at the school. All the languages can be the first foreign language for some years. –Additional: Italian, Polish and Japanese
All Saints IMPRESSIONS “When we went to the All Saints Roman Catholic School, I was curious about what to expect. The homepage made the impression of a school attaching great importance to very good work by the pupils.” “After we had been welcomed by the head teacher, we had a short guided tour around the school.”
All Saints IMPRESSIONS “… both buildings were old and spread a nice atmosphere.” “After we had a quick look at the chapel we were split up into small groups of two or three people in order to visit several classes.”
All Saints IMPRESSIONS “I visited a Chemistry lesson in the 8th form. The classroom matched the old buildings because its furniture was all wooden.”
All Saints IMPRESSIONS “The discipline of the pupils was somehow missing in this lesson. The teacher had great difficulties in calming down the boys and girls. But this was different in other lessons.”
A round of applause for our guide!
St Peter‘s GROUP before: scared by dress code afterwards: impressed by teaching facilities (arts college!!!)

German class at St Peter‘s
St Peter‘s IMPRESSIONS “Sports play a very important role for pupils and teachers.” “The German lessons we visited were quite interesting for us but seemed a bit old- fashioned.” “I felt a bit like visiting Hogwarts because of the castle-like old buildings, the different boarding houses and the vast area.”
St Peter‘s IMPRESSIONS “The food in the canteen was very good. You could choose between English and international meals.” “Pupils told me they choose German as a subject because it is easier than French. But Spanish is favoured anyway.” “The head of the German Department, the German assistant teacher and the two students who showed us around, were very nice and answered every question.” –Our thanks to everyone!!
