Pershore High School is a co-educational academy school, with a Sixth form, in Pershore, Worcestershire, England. It is the only high school in Pershore and also takes pupils from surrounding villages. It has a capacity of 1,273 pupils aged between 12 and 18.

The school was founded in 1932 as 'Pershore County Senior School'. It was built to accommodate 480 pupils but began with 430 enrolments. In 1973 following the nationwide educational reforms of the late 1960s and early 1970s, it became a comprehensive school for 12- to 18-year-olds. It achieved Technology College status in 2002 and in 2007 it was recognised as a Training School. The school has a centre that provides specialist resources for up to 15 pupils with autism. In 2011 the school became an academy.[1]
