Princes Risborough School


I'm really worried sending my cold to school. My dad is 77 and vulnerable lives with us and other members of the family. What do other parents think?
Assembly for this week is on 'The power of positive thinking' by Mr Essex:
Bucks New Uni has closed immediately. Just received email. I thought I would share this.
Are you closing because of coronavirus?
Parents of year 7 students starting in September, which chrome books have you brought ???? Recommendations welcome
Today my sons iPhone 6 was stolen from his backpack under school roofs! He’s in year 7 and I think thats disgusting that pupils of his age (or older) have the guts to do something like that! If my sons phone isn’t returned by tomorrow then we will be calling the police and finger prints from his backpack will be taken!
Is anyone doing food enrichment tomorrow, lost ingredients list for fairy cakes, can anyone help, thank you
Please make a decision on school closure before our children leave for school. My son has an hour journey to school and has to leave at 7 am thank you
are you open as usual today
My daughter (yr 7) has lost her locker key and front door key. If anyone finds them around school Please can you hand to Mrs Rochford or Mrs May. Thanks heaps.

We're incredibly proud of our PRS choir for performing at the Royal Albert Hall this week in the 2023 BMT - Buckinghamshire Music Trust Celebration Concert. Not only did they experience performing on a world famous stage, they formed part of a large ensemble alongside other young musicians across the Bucks region. What a great experience!

Insignis Academy Trust 03/03/2023

Insignis Academy Trust


There is a proposal agreed between Buckinghamshire Council and Insignis Academy Trust for a new building with four classrooms at Princes Risborough School.

In line with the guidance issued by the Department for Education, any increase in building capacity of more than one classroom requires consultation. This will run until 31st March 2023.

The Council has submitted planning permission for the four-class new building. Temporary classrooms will be needed until the permanent building is fully delivered (estimated Spring 2024).

The co-operation and participation of all involved will maximise the success of any solution to address the current lack of provision for school places in the area. We would therefore welcome your feedback during this formal consultation phase.

For more information and to complete the form, use the following link below by the 31st of March 2023.

Insignis Academy Trust


World Book Day (UK & Ireland) - Today we are reading a chain story throughout the course of the day. At the start of each lesson, every teacher reads a short section of Iridescent Adolescent by Phoebe Roy for about 5 minutes. The students will hear the story in instalments and by the end of the day will have had the whole story read to them.


If you work for a company, local to our School (HP27 0DR) and want to take part in our next Careers Fair on Thursday 27th April, please email Laura Redrup [email protected]
