"Teachers have gone over and beyond their job in helping my son and for this I won't hesitate in recommending the school."

Academics

Prior Park Schools are known for their ambitiously high standards.

Our academic results are excellent. Now into our fourth academic year, the school continues to achieve an impressive set of exam results with a 100% high grade pass rate so far. In our founding cohort, 80% of all passes were at grades 7-9 with a remarkable 19% of all grades at 9. For context, the UK pass rate for grade 9s was 4.3%. Excellence in these thresholds has repeated itself in subsequent years. The school will celebrate our first set of A-level results this summer from our inaugural cohort. Of those founding Sixth Formers applying to go on to university, all have been accepted by several of their chosen universities.

Prior Park School offers a deliberately broad curriculum in Years 7, 8 & 9, followed by a more focused one for Years 10 & 13, leading to up to ten GCSE’s and 4 A Levels being taken.

Our strong links with Prior Park College in Bath also mean that we have the flexibility to offer teaching in some of the subjects that they offer that we don’t via an online classroom environment.

School days begin at 8:30am with a pattern of assemblies and services, so important to sustain the ethos of our community. Lessons of eighty minutes run from 9:00am until 3:40pm with a short morning break and afternoon break and an hour for lunch, with the time from 4:00 to 6:00pm being used for our co-curricular programme of sport, music, drama, service options and intellectual enrichment.
