Welcome...

Welcome to our digital prospectus. We have once again made the decision to run with a virtual open evening and live school tour format for this year. These events have proven to be very successful in recent years and coupled with the chance for all families to come for a visit during the school day, we believe this is the best way for students and parents to get the most personalised approach, 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. You can book on to both our virtual open evening live Google Meets and our school tours further down this page. Bookings will open in September.

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 child.

Previous Feedback



"We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our open evening session last evening. We were very impressed by the students who led the presentation. Their friendly, interactive and knowledgeable approach made a big difference to us parents as well as to our son, they managed to keep him interested for the whole session!"

"I thought the Google Meet was a great idea combined with the videos and the two girls who led our time slot at 7.30pm did a great job engaging with the children."

"I just wanted to thank the school for the wonderful open evening last night. The two children where so impressive, organised and extremely reassuring with their answers."

"I know that nothing replaces seeing the school in person, but the videos, the range of presentations and also the students who hosted our call really were all excellent. Thank you for engaging and exciting my ten year old son who was able to confidently put The Priory as his first choice secondary school."

"The Google Meet was just brilliant what an ingenious idea. We had a lovely meet with Rai-Rai and Priya who were a credit to the school. All of the presentations showcased what a brilliant school the priory Is. I felt it captured the feeling of the school beautifully. Maisie loved being part of the online open evening and loved doing the Google Meet, wonderful opportunity to build her confidence, thank you for asking her."

"If people make decisions based on the open evenings alone, I think TPS will win hands down. Tonight’s event was excellent, well done.......I just really hope we get in!"

The Google Meet was well structured; the videos provide a good insight into school life and the questions to prompted discussion. The small group format worked well and gave the kids the confidence to share their feedback and questions.
