Princes Risborough School

At Princes Risborough School we believe that every child matters and that all children should be given the opportunity to be as successful as they can be.  We emphasise ‘learning’ as our core function and insist that everyone, students, staff and parents, constantly models its importance. We also believe that students learn best when they are excited and involved in their subjects, hence the school Motto: ‘Enjoy and Achieve’ – this underpins and shapes everything we do; not only in the academic, social, sporting and extra-curricular arenas, but in every single facet of our school day.

PRS is an Upper School for boys and girls aged between 11-18 years and our students are drawn from a wide diaspora of locations in South Buckinghamshire; nestled in the Chiltern foothills we are surrounded by some of the most amazing vistas and historically diverse locations in the UK.  Opened in 1957 as a Secondary Modern for 300 students, we now head toward our 60th year with a student roll of 1000, and in a different guise: as an Academy school.

Since our transition in 2011, the school has moved from strength to strength and we continue to embrace modernity, aspiration and enterprise; this youthfulness resonates in our dynamic and forward thinking approach to everything we do. At PRS, we constantly strive for the highest standards and this is mirrored by results: in 2017, PRS followed our best ever A Level results with a really pleasing set of GCSEs results that saw students achieving higher than national outcomes in English and maths, yet again.

These students will be citizens of the future and we must prepare them for the complexities and pressures of 21st Century life. To do this, we continually strive to appoint top quality teachers who will embrace our ‘Enjoy and Achieve’ mantra and who want to make a tangible and lasting impression to a diverse range of students.

We are an inclusive, aspirational and progressive school. Our Vision is that PRS is the ‘School of Choice’ for local children and that they leave us as ‘Successful Learners, Confident Individuals and Responsible Citizens’.
