Our History

The Prior Foundation encompasses Prior Park College (established in 1830), Prior Park Preparatory School (set up in 1946) and The Paragon Junior School (which joined the Foundation in 2006).

We have copies of school magazines from Prior Park College dating back as far as January 1886, with the opening article about the funeral of the late Bishop Errington and reliving memories of him. It is said "His Grace never passed a boy, either in or out of the College, without some mark of recognition" Bishop Errington is remembered today by name in the Errington corridor outside the Chapel.

If you have any specific queries about our history, or indeed have something to add from your knowledge and memories then we would be pleased to hear from you.

In time we hope to be able to develop an archive area, and to share this with you.
