The Priory School is a mixed secondary school and sixth form located in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, England. It is a community school operated by Hertfordshire Local Authority. The school is fully comprehensive but has a specialism in Business and Enterprise.

The Priory School is the only coeducational secondary school in Hitchin, the others being Hitchin Boys' School and Hitchin Girls' School. However The Priory School is part of a sixth form consortium with the other two schools, and some Priory sixth form students have classes for certain courses at the other school sites.
