It was originally a hostel for 13 men established by the Bishop of Liverpool in 1929, not achieving collegiate status until 1961, admitting women in 1979. It incorporates a motley collection of buildings: the entrance, porters' lodge and library is part of a Georgian rectory called Linton House dating from 1797; Canal House the master's lodgings dates from the early 19th century; the dining hall Hannington Hall dating from 1832 is the only remaining part of New Inn Hall, the street in which it is situated; the college chapel has taken over what was built as the Church of St. Peter-Le-Bailey in 1874; student living accommodation is in what used to be part of Oxford Girls' School. Otherwise St. Peter's provided the answer to the question what do the filmmaker Ken Loach, the cook and ecologist Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Bank of England Governor Mark Carney have in common? Answer they were all students here.
