Headmaster's Welcome

Peter Watts 
Headmaster, Prior Park School 

"We are genuinely extremely pleased with the entire Prior Park School experience"

- Current parent

Welcome to Prior Park School, Gibraltar, one of three schools in the Prior Park family which also includes Prior Park College, Bath and The Paragon School, Bath. 

The school is a thriving community operating on the former Sacred Heart campus in the Old Town, high above the noise of the city. We accept students from ages 11 to 18 and teach the UK curriculum including GCSE and A Level examinations. 

Prior Park is a modern Christian Catholic school with a maximum capacity of 260 pupils. We have a staff to student ratio of 1:8 with a maximum of 40 children per year group.  

As Headmaster, I aim 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 genuine 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 families , but would invite you to come and meet our staff and students.

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.
