About Prior Park College
Prior Park College is an extraordinarily happy, friendly and successful Christian community. The College is one of the largest Independent, fully established, co-educational, Catholic boarding and day school in the UK. With 53% boys and 47% girls this is a truly co-educational place. The College’s Catholic life means that those of other denominations are warmly welcomed.
’An Education for Life’
Sensitive, individual pastoral care creates an environment which engenders self-respect and respect for peers and staff. The community consists of 550 pupils of whom approximately 125 are boarders. Many pupils also flexi-board.
Encouragement of the highest academic standards and all round success is underpinned by praise and positive teaching within a disciplined environment. Set in a magnificent site overlooking the World Heritage City of Bath, the boarding ethos of the school proves attractive to day families and is central to the life of the College.
Prior Park College’s mission is to:
Provide Catholic Christian education of the highest quality for a boarding and day co-educational community.
Develop as fully as possible the academic and other talents of each boy and girl to ensure an education of the whole person.
Provide pastoral care of an encouraging, supportive and disciplined nature for each pupil.
Create an outward looking ethos which builds links with the parents and the local community, and also celebrates the richness of cultures from around the world.
Enable College leavers to be confident, capable, compassionate and independent-minded.
