Princethorpe College

From 11 July 2016, due to the College driveway being resurfaced, there will be a temporary access for all car traffic into Princethorpe College (apart from on A-level and GCSE Results Days – Thursdays 18 and 25 August respectively).

Please use the post code CV23 9QF, this should take you to the temporary entrance from Coventry Road, off the Oxford Road.

Once on site, you should be able to park in the playground or North car park.  Visitors please follow signs.

If you encounter any difficulties, please call our main Reception on 01926 634200.

Princethorpe College is a Catholic, co-educational, HMC independent day school for about 850 pupils aged eleven to eighteen and welcomes members of all faiths and backgrounds.

The College is renowned for the way in which it looks after its pupils and is characterised by its strong Christian ethos, which underpins everything we do.

The school has a unique history, beautiful surroundings and unequalled character. The atmosphere is warm, open and friendly, but the traditional values of courtesy, discipline, organisation and mutual respect are expected from all; pupils are not stuffy but know how to behave.

We pursue academic rigour, want our pupils to be enthusiastic about hard work and to play a full part in the broader aspects of school life, whether in sport, drama, music, charitable fund-raising, community service, the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, or the many other activities which are on offer. We also want them to enjoy their education.

Our aim is simple: to treat every pupil as an individual, supporting them as they grow into mature, confident, resilient and well-rounded young people with a strong set of moral values to guide them through adult life. 

We have our own junior school and nursery, Crackley Hall School and Little Crackers, just down the road in Kenilworth, and as of 1 September 2016 new to the Foundation, we welcome Crescent School, an independent junior school in Rugby.  These schools all share our ethos, resources and love of learning.
