Welcome...

Welcome to our digital prospectus. With the restrictions imposed upon us as a result of the pandemic, our usual Open Evening, paper prospectus and Open Morning tours have had to change this year. Please scroll down this page to hear and see how our school runs. We are determined to give you the best insight we can and hope you enjoy what you see.

The Priory School is a learning environment which promotes high aspirations, high expectations and academic success.

In leading the school I have four key aims:

• To be ambitious for academic success for our students.
• To ensure that our students enjoy their learning.
• To create opportunities for students to develop the key values of responsibility, respect and resilience.
• To keep students safe and happy at school so that they can learn effectively.

At The Priory School we have a dedicated team of teachers, support staff and governors who believe that every child has the right and ability to succeed. To embed our students’ learning, we need to ensure that we have strong partnerships with parents and carers. By sharing the same educational goals and working collaboratively, we will be able to lay the foundations for the future success of your son or daughter.
