About Prescott

Prescott Primary Northern, established in 1973, provides a warm, caring environment where all children can learn to relate positively to students, staff and other adults. It recognises the uniqueness of each individual and priority is given to helping every student develop socially, spiritually, emotionally, academically and physically to the fullest extent possible.
