Prior Park College is running digital classrooms whilst schools are closed during the Covid-19 pandemic.
On 19 March, the College shut its doors to all students except remaining boarders and those children of key workers. This did not stop our teachers from teaching and on Monday 23 March, Prior Park digital College opened.
With our Remote Learning Policy, our students are able to continue with their studies and remain part of our school community, which includes morning House assemblies, Prior 4 Life and co-curricular activities. Our aim is to not compromise on teaching and learning.
We are delighted to report that the response from pupils and their parents has been overwhelmingly positive, with many saying it has brought "structure, purpose and valuable interaction with teachers and peers."
In addition, our D&T and Textiles departments have produced PPE for NHS and other key workers during the lockdown. Over 15,000* face visors have been produced by our D&T team, whilst fabric uniform wash bags, hats and scrubs have been made by our Textiles team and distributed to local hospitals.

BSA Covid-Safe Charter Prior Park College has adopted the BSA Covid-Safe Charter, confirming that we will comply with all Government rules and guidance and will meet all requirements when our boarders return to school.
