Welcome to Prendergast School

Welcome to our school website

It is an honour to have been appointed as the new Headteacher of Prendergast School and Prendergast Sixth Form.  Prendergast has been educating children for over 125 years and has been rated as Outstanding by OFSTED in the last three inspections.  I am looking forward to working with staff, students, families and the wider community to take Prendergast on the next stage of its journey.

Prendergast is a girls’ school from years 7 to 11 with 4 forms of entry, with the exception of 5 forms of entry in year 7.  The 6th Form is co-educational and offers primarily level 3 courses.

We are very proud of the Prendergast school community which supports students to develop into twenty-first century global citizens.  At GCSE this year the progress that students made was excellent and almost 30% of all grades were A/A* and over half were over B.  Half of A level subjects taken gained over 50% A*-B grades.  We believe that academic progress is incredibly important; however it is also important that students are safe, happy and thrive.  We ensure that students benefit from an excellent pastoral system, a wide extra-curricular offer and lots of wider opportunities including many trips.  We encourage students to welcome challenge and become resilient learners.

I do hope you enjoy looking through our website.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.
