Social Responsibility & Community Projects

Prior Park pupils are committed to a wide range of community projects. A summary of projects that our Sixth Formers are involved in can be found on the Sixth Form Social Responsibility page. As a whole community, we also share an awareness for the environment, and have formed Eco-Prior which pledges the following:

Prior Park Ten Green Commitments:

  • To protect God’s creation: the air, water, land, animals, birds, and fish
  • To promote sustainable growth in the world
  • To respect your neighbours and local environment
  • To reduce waste
  • To promote fair trade and equality
  • To reduce pollution
  • To protect the right to clean air, land, water, and food.
  • To save and conserve the planets resources
  • To promote mutual respect and justice for all peoples, free from any form of discrimination or bias.
  • To protect life

Fundraising for Charity

Head of Charities – Mrs Melanie Ball

Here at Prior Park College as with our other schools we are committed to making a difference within our community to those that are less fortunate than ourselves. Importantly it gives our students a chance to use their talents and skills for the good of others. We have a democratic process of selecting our charities, and for the academic year 2016/2017 are supporting two worthy causes. The Downs Syndrome Association a cause close to the hearts of two of our families in particular and The Wallace & Gromit Appeal, for Bristol Children’s Hospital who had provided much needed support to one of our families.  During the course of the school year, we put the fun back into fundraising and have so far had a Wrong Trousers Day and a cake sale. Other events will follow so that we can maximise our contribution and really make a difference. Our fundraising is led by a Charities Committee of 6th form students who act as role models for the rest of school driving our fundraising forward. We look forward to another successful year ahead.
