Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to Prior Park Prep School. Thank you for visiting our website and I hope that we’ll soon meet in person.

Every parent wants the best for their child. It’s an obvious thing to say but it really is true. I hope that by spending some time on our website and coming to visit us too, you’ll see that Prior Park Prep School can offer the very best to your child and your family.

We are a small school with big ideas. Our Christian ethos, expert pastoral support, experienced teachers and small classes enable us to focus on the happiness and development of every single child. As you would expect, we provide an inspirational and challenging curriculum for our pupils. We do this in an environment that cares for them, nurtures them and helps them develop into confident, happy young people who are ready to achieve and thrive at senior school.

Choosing a school is a complicated task, and a serious one. Perhaps this is the first time you’ve considered an independent school for your family. We hope you’ll take the time to read our pages and understand our vision of what a high-quality independent school education has to offer the youngest children.

I warmly invite you to visit us. Only in this way will you experience the true spirit of Prior Park and see for yourself why this is the school community in which your son or daughter will thrive.

I look forward to meeting you. 

Mr M A Pearce

Throughout the school the pupils' overall achievement is excellent. Pupils show great enthusiasm for learning. They are eager to respond to questions as well as to ask them, showing their developing enquiring minds. Teaching shows high expectations of pupils and encourages self-belief. Pupils realise this and have a confident 'I can' culture.
