About us

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 will operate from the former Sacred Heart campus in Old Town and a programme of refurbishment is underway to see the school open for Years 8 through 10 in September 2016. The following year the school will expand to include Years 11 and 12, with full senior school provision in September 2018.

Prior Park Schools is a group of Catholic/Christian schools with strong ties to Gibraltar, where a number of former pupils reside. Our schools have a clear Vision that enables every student to share in the life of the schools and to genuinely support the Head and the staff in achieving higher goals. We also have a clear Ethos - to care for our students so that they feel empowered to develop their talents in many different ways. We want out students to be rooted in the Christian Values of consideration, compassion, kindness, service, contribution to others and an openness to God on which they can build their lives and which will be their inspiration in good times and comfort in bad.

I am delighted to have been appointed Headmaster of Prior Park Gibraltar. Previously I was Deputy Headmaster of Sherborne School in the UK. I look forward to putting my own stamp on the new school, whilst remaining subject to the governance and bound by the values and ethos as stated above. I will also, of course, take over the exciting task of recruiting staff and students. In the meantime, we hope that this website will provide enough information to give you a sense of what our new school will offer Gibraltarian families.

On this page you can download booklets detailing the school curriculum, GCSE choices and co-curricular activities. Details of how to register your child for the school can be found on the Admissions page.

On this website, you will also find the names and contact details of key staff who can answer your questions and we invite you to visit the News & Events page for regular updates.

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