Headmaster's Welcome

Peter Watts 
Headmaster, Prior Park School 

"The school stands head and shoulders above other schools we have experienced and my daughter is fluorishing and growing greatly in confidence"

- Current parent of a YEAR 11 STUDENT

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 Catholic Christian school with a maximum capacity of 260 pupils. We have a staff to student ratio of 1:8 with only 40 children in a year group.  

As Headmaster, I hope 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 genuinely caring community, and a special place to go to school.

I have been privileged to be the founding Headmaster of Prior Park School, Gibraltar. I am thoroughly enjoying developing and growing our school and its programme of study, whilst holding 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 students and their families , but would invite you to come for a visit and to meet our staff and students.

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.
