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.
