Admissions Policy

Our aim is to admit pupils with academic and other qualities such that the child would gain the maximum benefit from the opportunities available at Prior Park College, whilst maintaining a balance between day and boarding pupils, boys and girls. In the event of there being more applications than places available, places will be offered in accordance with the following criteria the weighting of these criteria may vary:

  • academic ability and school report or an informal teaching assessment
  • extra-curricular interests and other talents
  • whether the family are Roman Catholics or other Christians
  • siblings* at Prior Park College or other schools within Prior Park Schools
  • previous attendance at The Paragon or Prior Park School Gibraltar
  • class size and size of the school roll
  • other factors

* A child is a sibling if they are a full or half-brother or sister, they are an adoptive brother or sister if they are children of the same household.

The full Admissions Policy can be downloaded on this page.
We aim to make the admission process informative and as transparent as possible.
