SMSP School

St Mary's and St Peter's Church of England Primary School

Our school is a voluntary-aided Church of England School, sponsored by the Teddington parish church of St Mary's with St Alban.


St Mary's and St Peter's is one of the oldest schools in the Borough of Richmond upon Thames, founded in 1832. Originally it occupied Victorian premises on the site of the current SS Peter and Paul church, and was erected using voluntary contributions and with the patronage of Queen Adelaide, who made a personal donation of £100. It was rebuilt on the present site in Somerset Road in 1975 and celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2007.

The Governors

The Governors of St Mary’s & St Peter’s school are responsible for the strategic direction of our school and are very involved in the whole of school life. They meet as a group twice a term as well as for regular sub-committees. The Chair of Governors, Revd. Mary Hawes, can be contacted via the school.

St Mary with St Alban has several Foundation Governors who sit on the governing body, including The Revd David Cloake.

School Admissions

The full policy can be found on the school website here.

To apply for a church place, you need to fill in a Supplementary Application Form (available from the school website here) in which you’re asked to declare that you have met this attendance requirement.

Please contact the parish office for this to be signed by The Revd David Cloake, your Vicar. This can be done by email, or deliver the form directly to the Parish Office (the mailbox is to the left of the main doors of St Mary’s Parish Hall, for the attention of Fr David. You will then be contacted when it is ready for collection, which is typically done after Sunday service. It can also be returned to you by post if you include a stamped addressed envelope.

The deadline for delivering your form to the Vicar is the end of December prior to the year of school entry.

Please also include a family photo to help us put names and faces together – a simple home print-out is fine, or as an attachment to the email.

Governors review the admissions policy annually. Please address any queries about the policy to the school.
