Prestatyn High School is an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school maintained by Denbighshire local authority. There are currently 1,769 pupils on roll, including 339 in the sixth form.

Over 16% of the pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is just above the local authority average and close to the Wales average over the last three years. Ten per cent of pupils live in the 20% most deprived parts of Wales. Nearly all pupils are from English speaking homes. Twenty-eight pupils (1.5%) receive support for English as an additional language. Currently 18% of the pupils are on the school’s additional learning needs register, with 1.5% having statements of special educational needs. The current headteacher has been in post since April 2006 and the leadership team has seen significant changes since the last inspection. There have been recent improvements in information and communications technology (ICT) resources, and there is a newly built post-16 learning centre. The 2010-2011 individual school budget, per pupil, for Prestatyn High School is £3,790, which compares with a maximum of £4,314 and a minimum of £3,790 for secondary schools in Denbighshire.
