Prince Henry's High School is a school in Evesham, Worcestershire, England. It is a co-educational comprehensive high school, in which there are about 1260 students enrolled, aged between 13 and 18.[1]

The school is over 630 years old[citation needed] and was originally set up as a school for the poor that was attached to Evesham's Benedictine Abbey. The school is named after Prince Henry, the brother of King Charles I. Dr Lewis Bayley had previously taught at and secured an endowment for the school from the town of Evesham through a new town charter[citation needed], which identifies the school as a "Free Grammar School of Prince Henry in Evesham".

The School was a Grammar School until 1973, when it became a Comprehensive school. In 1993 it became a Grant-maintained school then in 1999 it became a Foundation School. It is now a Language College.[1]


The predominant entry to the school is by students entering in Year 9 from one of the feeder middle schools:
