The Paragon is part of the Prior Park Schools family. This includes our senior school, Prior Park College, Prior Park School Gibraltar, and Prior Park Preparatory School in Wiltshire.
Prior Park College is situated overlooking the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath. Christianity informs our values and development of the whole person. We believe a child's education should be exciting, interesting and an enjoyable journey towards a realisation of their full potential, offering 'An Education For Life'.
Prior Park College, Bath, has 580 pupils and is one of the largest fully co-educational Catholic Independent boarding and day schools in the UK. This year Prior Park College celebrates 30 years of co-education.
Prior Park is a Catholic school which warmly welcomes Catholics and pupils of other Christian denominations, other religions and those of no religion. Many families choose the College because of the combination of strong community and excellent academic results.
Day pupils join us at the age of 11+ from around 20 feeder schools across Bath and preparatory school pupils join at the age of 13+. Approximately 20 pupils join our Sixth Form each year. Prior Park is home to 130 full and weekly boarders aged 13-18. With 52% boys and 48% girls this is a truly co-educational school. Our House-based pastoral care is perceived by parents to be greatly supportive of each individual. The College provides an extensive co-curricular programme, which includes Saturday Active.
Prior Park Preparatory School is a 3-13 day co-educational Catholic preparatory school based at Cricklade in Wiltshire. It provides a secure and caring family environment for pupils. As a non-selective school, we are extremely proud of the high academic standards achieved and the well-roundedness of the students as they leave the school in Year Eight and continue their academic journey at Prior Park College.
The fourth school to join the Prior Park Schools' family is Prior Park School Gibraltar, a 12-18 day co-educational Catholic senior school. This new school operates from the former Sacred Heart campus in the Old Town of Gibraltar. The school opened for Years 8 through 10 in September 2016. In September 2017, the school will expand to include Year 11, with full senior school provision in September 2018.
