"My time within the Prior Park Schools was a phenomenal experience which I am so thankful for. The support, the opportunities and the friendships I formed will stand me in good stead for life! The transition from the Prep School to the College was easy, especially as I was fortunate to be transferring with close friends that I'd made from a young age. I'm currently at university and the independence I learned through my time at Prior Park has helped me a lot. However, I would do anything to go back to my Prior Park Prep and College days. I owe so much to Prior Park - a school, an ethos and second home that I love. If you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend Prior Park, grasp it with both hands!"
