Values and vision

Burscough Priory Science College aims to ensure students are free from any prejudice based on gender, race, ability, belief or sexual orientation. An appreciation and respect for uniform is also important to the school – students are encouraged to comply with appearance guidelines and take pride in how they look. 

The secondary school specialises in science, changing its name to reflect this in 2004, as part of the Specialist Schools programme. 

Ofsted report

Whether in lessons, corridors, dining areas or outside, students are calm and happy. This is because they feel secure, have high expectations of their own behaviour and of the behaviour of others. They feel this is their school, and they are proud of it. Students are mature, respectful of others and demonstrate impressive moral development. Students play a key role in managing behaviour. Students’ attitudes are exemplary; they have a love of learning.”
