We need your support

At Princethorpe, 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.

The Princethorpe Foundation
Our Development Office works to enable the provision of more bursaries to deserving pupils, to update our facilities and buildings, and to meet our strategic development plans.

We believe that every child with the potential and passion to benefit from a Princethorpe education should be given the opportunity to learn, grow and develop here.

With your support, we can help more children to benefit from this unique education.

  • Our Stories


    Old Princethorpian (2018)

    I come from a single-parent, low income background and Princethorpe was the most critical part of my early childhood development and certainly education. I made friends I still depend on today. I continue to reap the rewards of the extra-curricular opportunities in Design and Technology in which I participated. 

  • It is fantastic to see Princethorpe enabling education for all; I am delighted to play a part in these exciting developments.

  • After losing my father at a young age the support which Princethorpe offered me both financially and educationally was what I needed to develop as a person and achieve educational success.

    Catherine joined the Development Team in August 2017 in order to start the task of bringing all the 14,500 records currently on our database up to scratch. With a background in educational ICT and Computing, she has already started work, ensuring that the records held are as secure, up-to-date and reliable as possible. The data currently held involves Old Princethorpians, former pupils of St Mary's Priory, former parents, former staff and other friends of Princethorpe College. The data is used to contact our community about news and events and further development of the school. Future work will include collation of data from our other foundation schools and working with former pupils to establish an alumni and careers online platform. Catherine enjoys working at Princethorpe so much she also has a second job in our Admissions Office, where she works in the afternoons. Outside of Princethorpe, Catherine, and her husband, David, have three grown up sons. She enjoys quizzes and puzzles, travel and history.
