Prior Park College

At Prior Park, every child is known, valued, and cared for. It is an open and friendly place where your child will thrive. Students are educated in a beautiful environment and are given a high-quality education, both inside and outside the classroom.


The school’s primary aim is to provide a genuine all-round education and whilst academic endeavour remains at the school’s core, we encourage our students to embrace all the opportunities on offer – acting and singing in first class performances; competing for their team, participating in House events; producing impressive works in art and design; leading our Charities work. Our students emerge with a character that is well rounded, and an academic profile that allows them to take their next step in life with confidence – whatever that step might be.

“This is a school which inspires esteem and affection in equal measure.” The Good Schools Guide

The College is home to up to 150 full, weekly and flexi boarders. We do all we can to make boarding a life enhancing experience, where students benefit from being able to develop strong friendships and independence in a home-from-home environment. Set in 57 stunning acres and just a mile from the centre of Bath, our boarders benefit from both vibrant city life and peaceful countryside surroundings.


There are frequent direct trains from Bath to London (80 minute journey) and London Heathrow is two hours by car.
