The St Peter’s Foundation

In 1924, a young man by the name of Arthur Francis Broadhurst left his family’s prosperous cotton business in England to pursue his dream — to establish a modern preparatory school for boys that embraced a holistic “mind, body, spirit” education. Since its humble beginnings in 1936, St Peter’s has grown from seven full-time staff and a roll of 36 boy boarders, to a roll of over 1,200 day and boarding students, boys and girls, from Years 7 to 13. The St Peter’s Foundation continues this tradition through philanthropy, enabling alumni, business, and current parents to provide financial support to preserve the School’s founding values of wellbeing, quality education and Christian character. “Structa Saxo” – built on a rock. Alumni, donors, parents and sponsors are the rock that enables St Peter’s to fulfil its mission and purpose.

“St Peter’s is founded on philanthropy, and its success stems from its close ties to the community. Arthur Broadhurst personally offered numerous scholarships to allow boys from the district to attend St Peter’s. And in 1939 he generously gifted the school to the St Peter’s Trust Board, affording generations of future students the opportunity to experience a world-class education in New Zealand.” Read More

Preserving Our Legacy

St Peter’s has a proud history of performing arts, music and chapel services. And the organ stands as central to the life and tradition of St Peter’s. It has huge historical significance and it is important to preserve this fine instrument. Which is why a campaign has been started to raise $180K for a new state-of-the-art digital transmission system.
