In 1862, Percival was appointed the first headmaster of Clifton College in Bristol, on Temples recommendation.

Percival made this new school into a leading public school. He became President of Trinity College, Oxford in January 1879. In May 1887, he became headmaster of Rugby School. During his time as headmaster, he pursued a vigorous moral crusade. His leadership soon improved the prestige of the school. Lord Rosebery, the Prime Minister, nominated Percival to be Bishop of Hereford in January 1895. Whilst Queen Victoria was opposed to the idea, since Percival was known to favour the disestablishment of the Church in Wales, Rosebery prevailed. Percivals time in Hereford was affected by the death of his wife in 1896, although he remarried in 1899.

He retired to Oxford in 1917 and died the following year. He was buried in the chapel crypt of Clifton College.
