History The school was founded by twelve British Steel Companies under the banner ISCON (INDIAN STEEL CONSORTIUM) and the metropolitan of India under the caption “Durgapur Steel Projects” in accordance with the Resolution to provide education for children whose parents were employed with ISCON in Durgapur.  The school opened humbly in 1956 under the name of ISCON primary school and property is vested with the Durgapur Steel Plant from its very inception till date. In 1965, the school was handed over to the British Methodist Church in Durgapur under Rev Alan Stephens, who was presbyter, while Mrs Joan Stephens held fort as principal till the family left permanently for the United Kingdom.

In 1970, six church denominations came together to form the Church of North India in 1972, the diocese of Durgapur was created. As per policy of CNI, it was resolved that ISCON school, Durgapur be brought under the control of the diocese of Durgapur Church of North India with the Bishop of Durgapur as Ex- Officio chairman. With the transfer of ownership, ISCON primary school, was renamed Benachity Primary School. Since then the school has grown into a “High School”.

As per the constitution of the school, the Diocese of Durgapur CNI shall act as the Founder Body. Thus, the school is owned, managed and controlled by the Diocese of Durgapur, as a Christian Minority Institution, within the meaning of Article 30, of the Constitution of India and within the meaning of section 2(g) of the National Commission for Ministry Education Institutions Act 2004. The Founder Body, Diocese of Durgapur at its Executive Meeting held on 30 October, 2004 resolved that Benachity High School be re-named as ST PETER’S SCHOOL, housed at Mirabai Road Durgapur-713204.

Simon  Bar -Yonah, later named by Jesus  as Peter was one of the 12 apostles of Jesus and is regarded as the most important and spokesman of the Apostles, St Peter became to be known  as the  rock of the church  when Jesus declared  to Peter, ‘Thou art Peter (Kipha, a rock ), and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell Shall not prevail against it. And I will give three the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. And Whatsoever thou shalt bind upon the earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt lose on the earth,  it shalt be loosed in heaven.”(Matthew 16:18). His symbols are crossed keys, silver and gold keys which signify Saint Peter’s divinely-given power of binding and loosening. Saint Peter is the patron of saint of the fishermen.
His Feast Day is celebrated on June 29 with  great panache in many fishing communities, and often marked by the annual blessing if the fishing fleet and local specialty seafood dishes, many of which are named  after St Peter.

St Peter’s School has been built on a rock solid foundation for learning, which symbolizes strength, stability and reliability not allowing  one to be persuaded, enticed  or be deviated  from principles or standards and this is what we want to impart to our students.

As followers of Christ  we believe in Service  as Jesus  said that, “He had come to serve and not to be served.” we recognize that parents are most accountable before God for the nature of their children in the ways of the hold. Thus, the school  is in service to see itself as an extension of the home and believes that home and school are partners in helping students to grow in discipleship , establishing relationships and living in obedience  to God’s Word.

The Cross exemplifies the Sacrifice and love of Jesus Christ. It is our endeavour to produce proactive individuals of the nation, always ready to sacrifice and serve with an open heart and a smile on their face with humility and love.

Lotus our National flower, in the middle of the cross indicates Purity of thought, Purity of Mind and Purity of Action and the friendship and trust among pupils, teachers and the school community.

Books symbolize knowledge, ‘In knowledge lies the strength’ The school strongly believes that knowledge provides strength  and ability to achieve the goals of life especially to the downtrodden and underprivileged.

Durgapur has a whole array of manufacturing industries and Industry reflects the principle of “Progress in Harmony” that, staff and the community work together to provide the best possible opportunities for all students to develop and progress to their potential.

The river indicates River Damodar which flows through the city of Durgapur and is the life line to the farming community and the industries. Symbolically, a river represents the flow of time. It symbolizes the natural flow of Nature along with all of her cycles, transitions, transformations and passageways. It is a joy to watch the gradual transformation of our students from a shy and timid child to a happy, useful, self- supporting  citizen of India.

The Laurel leaves is  a symbol of eternal glory, of special achievement, success and triumph. In the Bible, it is also an emblem of peace, prosperity and fame.
