ESF Peak School opened in 1911 and grew rapidly to serve the needs of the community in the area. We are a 2-form entry school with 360 student places in Year 1 to Year 6. At Peak School, our mission is to become effective communicators, confident critical thinkers and enthusiastic life-long learners. In partnership with our community, we strive to have integrity and be socially responsible global citizens. The school prides itself on being a community school that respects and appreciates the contributions of everyone involved.
We offer the IB PYP, which is based on an inquiry approach to learning. Our highly committed and skillful staff ensure that children experience the joy of learning through a curriculum that is relevant, significant, engaging and challenging. At Peak School, students are supported and encouraged to enhance their sense of wonder and creativity through exploration and experimentation, making mistakes and learning from them along the way. Students at Peak School have a lot of opportunity to exercise leadership skills and participate in a range of arts, environmental, and sporting activities.
The school is fortunate to be nestled within the lush hills of The Peak, where we are surrounded by nature and have easy access to trails. The school also boasts of a large playing field, a well-resourced library, and a cosy garden. Most of all, we are proud of the strong family atmosphere that the Peak School community has fostered for over a hundred years.
