The Priory CofE Voluntary Aided School
The Priory School is all about high standards and expectations in all aspects of school life. We place great importance on achievement and success for all students.
Good teaching provides pace, challenge and opportunities for students to develop their unique strengths, talents and skills. This is matched by good facilities, a vibrant learning community and a strong partnership with parents.
We aim to provide the highest quality teaching and therefore expect the highest standards of work and behaviour. The school aims to provide an educational environment which encourages students to become confident, competent, self reliant and happy members of society, fully prepared for adult life and the world of work.
“Behaviour is outstanding and students are well prepared for their future economic well being through improved standards in English and mathematics, and good skills in information and communication technology.” OFSTED
At the heart of the school community is a set a shared values from which they seek to act. At The Priory we believe that every student should be given the opportunity to thrive at school and beyond. They seek to celebrate the positive aspects of diversity within our community. We believe that all persons have a part to play in leading each other to respectful and responsible attitudes in our school community and beyond.
The Priory School is a Voluntary Aided Church of England school and we believe that every student has a right to the highest standards of teaching and learning in a caring, supportive and nurturing learning environment.
We place great emphasis on our relationship with parents, dealing with issues in a thorough and sensitive way and we realise that support from home does much to aid the progress of each and every student. As a school, we work with strong Christian values to ensure the education of the whole student. As a Christian school we recognise the example offered to us of the perfect form of relationship through The Holy Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In this relationship the qualities of equality, honesty, humility, sacrificial love and generosity are revealed.
“The values of the school are well articulated and are lived out by the learners preparing them to be confident and successful young people when they leave The Priory. The relationships are excellent and underpin the family atmosphere where all young people and adults are valued and respected.” SIAS Inspection
