Student Life

Being a student at Prior Pursglove isn’t just about studying; it’s about the whole student experience that is available to you and most of our students leave here with happy memories to last them a lifetime.

Students travel from all over the area to study with us so you can be sure to make some new friends while you’re here. We also encourage you to take advantage of our enrichment programme of activities which take place over lunchtimes and after college – there’s always something going on! Find out whats coming up throughout the year during the freshers fayre in September.

Once you have chosen your courses and enrolled with us you will receive a timetable of lessons which is split up into five periods throughout the day with 45 minutes for lunch. You will not always be required to be in lessons and will have private study periods in which you can choose what to do with your time.
