About The School

Peter Watts For Website
Welcome to Prior Park School, Gibraltar. This is the fourth school to join the Prior Park Schools’ family which includes Prior Park College, Bath, Prior Park Prep School, Cricklade and The Paragon Junior School, Bath. 

The new school is a thriving community operating on the former Sacred Heart campus in the Old Town, high above the noise of the city. We currently have pupils in years 8, 9 and 10 and will expand to include Years 11 in September 2017. Our 6th Form (years 12 and 13) will open in September 2018 for A Level provision. 

Prior Park is a modern Christian Catholic school that follows the English exam system of GCSE and A level. When we have full senior school provision the school will hold up to around 240 students. We have a staff to student ratio of 1:10 with a maximum of 40 children per year group. 

As Headmaster, I want to know all my students and their parents well so that I can better understand their aspirations. A good school is not only one that produces lawyers, scientists or doctors, but also artists, musicians, sports men and women. Prior Park offers wonderful opportunities to develop all these strengths in an inclusive atmosphere. It is a community, and a special place to go to school.

I feel privileged to be the founding Headmaster of Prior Park School, Gibraltar. I am thoroughly enjoying putting my own stamp on this new school, whilst remaining subject to the governance, values and ethos of the Prior Park Schools' family. We hope that this website will provide enough information to give you a sense of what our new school can offer Gibraltarian families and would welcome you to visit, to find out more.

Finally, thank you for your interest in Prior Park School. Exciting times lie ahead as we continue to build a school of which all Gibraltar can be proud.
