Thank you for considering Priory School for your child.
Priory School puts children first. In our caring community, we value every child as an individual and we work hard to ensure all our children achieve their potential and are both successful and happy.
We focus on creativity in the curriculum and provide a stimulating and exciting environment in which children can learn, create, experience, and display their achievements. At Priory, all children are given the opportunity to discover their abilities, interests, and strengths.
Education is a partnership between home and school in which we work together to provide the best for your child. We hope that the years your child spends at Priory will always be remembered as inspiring, creative, happy, and successful.
