About us - Prior Park College, Bath, is one of the largest independent, co-educational, Catholic, HMC Established, boarding and day schools in the UK. Whilst retaining full boarding at its heart, Prior Park also caters for day and weekly boarding students aged 13-18.
Prior Park offers stimulating opportunities for pupils to contribute to our vibrant and creative community. We aim to inspire and challenge every one of them during their time here, to prepare them for the next stage of their lives.
Prior Park College is set in 57 acres of grounds overlooking the World Heritage City of Bath. It is an extraordinarily happy, friendly and successful Catholic Christian community with an open ecumenical spirit. Academic achievement is a vital foundation although 'success' is defined in the broadest and most inclusive way. The College strives to create the conditions where every pupil is engaged, challenged and encouraged. Pupils work hard and are well motivated, being supported by positive teaching. Strategies for supporting gifted and talented pupils are in place and are continually reviewed and developed. We offer 'An Education for Life.'
'I believe that everyone has a part to play at Prior Park and I want everyone to feel valued and excited about the prospect of contributing to this strong vibrant community. I expect the highest professional standards of our teaching and coaching staff as they constantly challenge themselves to create new ways to inspire and motivate our students. Our Catholic Christian ethos places a fundamental value on the intrinsic worth of each and every student. Challenging our students to develop a true sense of their self-worth and spirituality enables them to discern the guiding principles which remain with them throughout their lives. By embracing and developing key, new thinking skills, they meet the changes of this increasingly demanding and changing world with confidence. Above all, I ask them to develop their own leadership skills, understanding that they have a vital role in caring for others, influencing people and shaping events around them.' James Murphy-O'Connor, Headmaster
The school has outstanding facilities including a dedicated Sixth Form Centre, ICT Centre, Astroturf Pitches, Performing Arts Theatre and heated indoor Swimming Pool. A wide variety of music, arts, drama and dance productions are held in the magnificent Chapel, Theatre and Mackintosh Studio.
