Prior Park College educates boys and girls from the age of eleven to eighteen and offers boarding from the age of thirteen.  Prior Park aims to provide the highest quality Catholic Christian education: Deo duce Deo luce – With God our leader, with God our light. It seeks to promote as fully as possible every pupil’s talents, academic potential and personal development, providing pastoral care that is encouraging, supportive and disciplined. It endeavours to build links with parents, the local community and the wider cultures of the world, and to enable leavers to become confident, capable, compassionate and independent-minded.

The College was founded in 1830; it is now owned and governed by the Prior Park Educational Trust, which also has responsibility for two other schools. It is situated to the south of the historic city of Bath with buildings comprising a Georgian mansion and specialist teaching facilities that have been added over the years.

There are 584 pupils (317 boys and 267 girls) and we welcomes pupils from Catholic and non-Catholic families who are likely to benefit from and contribute positively to its ethos..

Prior Park College is outstandingly successful in achieving its aims. The College’s ethos is rooted in the best traditions of Catholic education and redolent of aspiration for the highest standards in academic endeavour and in every area of young people’s skills and talents. Academic outcomes are strong, with a very large proportion of A-level entries leading to grade A or A* results, while at GCSE results have been far above the national average for maintained schools. Students  not going onto Higher Education are successful in securing positions in the work place.  In sporting activities, outdoor pursuits and in areas such as music and the arts, pupils strive tirelessly for excellence and reach very high standards. Pupils of all abilities are enabled to find success and thereby grow in confidence. Pupils are provided with excellent opportunities in the curriculum and through the very extensive extra-curricular activities. There is high quality provision for those who find learning difficult and for the gifted and talented. Pupils’ personal development is of the highest quality

The spiritual life of the College is very strong and pupils appreciate the many opportunities for calm and reflection. They demonstrate a strong moral awareness. Pupils’ social skills are exceptionally well developed. They greatly value the wealth of cultural opportunities to which the College gives them access. Provision for boarding pupils ensures that all are happy and thrive; the atmosphere of the boarding houses is that of a happy family home.
