About us

Welcome to Prior Pursglove College!


We are a well established Sixth Form College with a long history of providing an excellent educational experience for our students.

We have a strong reputation for high standards, outstanding facilities and a real commitment to helping you, as an individual, to be as successful as you possibly can be. We want you to be happy here.

We specialise in full time courses for the 16-19 age group, providing a very wide range of Advanced level and Intermediate courses which can be taken in any combination. We also offer an extensive range of adult education courses.

The results that our students achieve regularly place us among the top performing colleges in the country for getting students to university. We are proud of their achievements and the part we have played as a college in shaping their future. The care and support that we give to our students is top priority for us.

At Prior, you will find first class staff who really care about you and your success. You can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome and a desire to support every individual to achieve the very best they are capable of. You will be encouraged to develop a mature and responsible approach to your studies, so that you can learn and achieve to the best of your ability. We also hope that you will enjoy your time with us and make new friends. We have a lovely campus, attractive buildings and excellent resources.

Taking the step from school to college is an exciting move. Our open evenings offer you and your parents the chance to visit the college and discuss your options with staff and, most importantly, our students. We are committed to helping you make an informed choice about your future and we hope you will come along to one of these evenings and find out how welcoming we are for yourself. 

The college has a long history; there has been educational provision on our campus since 1561. The college is up to date though, with a brand new student services building, a dedicated arts and media centre and specialist science labs.

We are very proud of our historical heritage and we are confident that the college has a bright future ahead.  I hope very much that you will want to join us and be a part of that too. I look forward to meeting you soon.
