Why choose our Secondary

We are building a family at Prendergast Vale with academic excellence at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is for every student who leaves this school at age 16 to be on the path to university leading to successful careers with good prospects. To make this happen, we ensure that the academic and social development of every student is at the heart of what we do. Not only should students have well regarded qualifications when they leave school but they will also acquire character traits that will enable them to be successful in life.

Traits such as optimism, resilience and confidence are developed throughout all subjects and through extracurricular activities.

Our subject specialists design engaging and high-quality curricula that enable our pupils to reach their academic potential and develop a thirst for learning. As a result, they will become confident, resourceful and independent learners who can pursue their ambitions and attend university if they wish. We encourage pupils to value their education at Prendergast Vale and we equip them to achieve and excel in life after school. They leave our care as responsible, motivated young adults who are eager to make positive contributions to society.

We are a very special community; as our school motto says ‘in perpetuum discimus’ - we are forever learning and we welcome your child continuing their learning in our family.
