About Priestlands School

Priestlands School, an 11-16 mixed comprehensive school, serves the south of the New Forest. Our catchment area covers an area of outstanding beauty, stretching from Beaulieu in the East, to Brockenhurst in the North, and Milford-on-Sea at its most westerly point. To the south lies the Solent, providing one of the most popular sailing areas in the country. We serve eleven primary and junior schools, although our intake includes children from other schools, including a number of private schools. Priestlands is an exciting school in which to work and we are proud of its many achievements. We are committed to being a leading comprehensive school that serves the entire community and provides high quality education across the curriculum. In 2015, we were recognised by the Minister for Schools as one of England’s top 100 schools for sustained performance at GCSE. Determined to build on this success and following record GCSE results in 2016 that put us 10%-15% above neighbouring schools, we launched our new school motto - Learn more... Do more... Be more... - and embraced Growth Mindset as a means to develop all of our young people. In 2017 we were placed 3rd in Hampshire for our Progress 8 score and in 2018 we continued this trend with excellent results again. Priestlands School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment.
