St. Peter's Bratton

Is a purpose-built school on the northern fringe of Telford. It has been created to serve the areas of Bratton, Shawbirch, Admaston, Wrockwardine and surrounding areas and planned to cater for 420 pupils. In establishing our school, we have striven to maintain a caring small school family ethos, in our larger well resourced setting.

The school offers excellent teaching facilities with a high specification of equipment. The fourteen class bases are semi-open plan and are arranged in three groups of four and one additional pair. Each opens out onto a shared practical area where children of different ages are able to work alongside each other to share and support their learning.

Further teaching spaces are available in three general purpose rooms, a library, a large hall/dining room and additional teaching spaces in a detached building called 'The Den'. It is from here the out-of-school club the 'Bratton Pack' is run.

The school has Wi-Fi access in every workspace and wireless networked portable laptops in each wing. Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and the hall has a state-of-the-art projection and sound system.

The school has extensive and interesting grounds including access to the landscaped area around the Bean Hill Brook. A playground designed by the pupils is accessed just outside the main entrance alongside a 'Village Green' area. In addition, the school grounds contain hard play areas, wild area with a range of environments, an amphitheatre designed by the pupils, playing field, pond and enclosed orchard. Children regularly use these areas as part of our 'Bratton Forest School' activities.

St Peter's is a Church of England Controlled Primary School, and as such, has a strong affiliation with the local church of St Peter's, Wrockwardine. We are proud of these links and the quality and breadth of provision for the spiritual dimension is commended in our OFSTED report. Our church inspection graded our provision as outstanding.



He was kind, not bad.

He was a healer, not a hurter.

He listened, didn't turn away.

He was born, then killed. He was Jesus.


He had been kissed, hung on a cross.

He'd done nothing wrong,

without him all would be lost.

He did not moan, nor groan or stir.


His life flashed before him,

remembering gold, frankincense and myrrh.

He was put in a tomb,

a boulder rolled over.


He went away, but came back to life the very next day.

Disciples cry out in their hideout,

'He was our teacher', said one,

Judas said 'What have I done?' 

and hanged his head with shame.


He was kind, not bad.

He was a healer, not a hurter.

He listened, didn't turn away.

He was born, then killed. He was Jesus.
