The Priory School opened in 1988 as a mixed, 11-19 community comprehensive school. It is located on the edge of Hitchin, an attractive market town with a population of 34,000, forty minutes by train to central London and Cambridge.

There are 1,120 students in the school, with Year 7 almost full on first choices and around 170 in the Sixth Form.

We are fortunate to possess extensive grounds and excellent facilities, offering a recently built teaching block, an extended Sixth Form, a recent extension to our Café, refurbished Art rooms and Library. All other teaching areas are resourced and furnished to a very high standard.
