Current Parents

As a community in the true sense of the word, Prior Park welcomes parents to share in the life of the College, from attending the numerous extraordinary student productions, to the inspirational Ralph Allen Lectures. The sporting side line is also a great meeting place, and we invite parents to support fixtures, both home and away, as often as they can.

Our social media pages are regularly updated, sharing day-to-day highlights and upcoming events. Follow us on Twitter @PriorPark and Facebook @prior.park.37

We are most grateful for the generosity of time and talent given by members of our parent support group POP (Parents of Prior). Details of how you can become a member and contribute are found on the POP page.


Covid-19. Partial return to school for students

On 15 June 2020, students in some year groups returned to school for the first time since the UK went into Lockdown in March. Our Covid-19 Risk Assessment Control Measures Summary can be downloaded from this page.

Extreme Weather Communication

We would like to inform you of our procedures in the event of extreme weather, in case there is a significant snowfall at some point this winter.

  • Unless there is a heavy snowfall we aim to keep the school open, although a limited service may be available. 
  • If snow falls during the night, we post information stating whether the school is open or closed, on the school website's homepage by 7.00am, and also send a text message and an email. If parents are unable to access this information, they will no doubt be able to make their own decision as to whether to start travelling to school.
  • If the school day is in session and extreme weather hits us in the course of the day, we will keep all the children safe and maintain classroom activities. Parents may collect children before the end of the school day if they feel this is better for them and that local conditions demand this, but it is vital that the receptionist is informed. In this case we will provide an update on the website and by text and email.
