Priory is a leading school in East Sussex with Arts, Language and Science College status, rated "Outstanding" by OFSTED and consistently oversubscribed. We are an 11-16 mixed comprehensive school situated in the County Town of Lewes, with approximately 1150 students on roll. The school aims to reflect the uniqueness of Lewes, historically and socially. Given our strong association with the author of natural justice, Tom Paine, it is our vision to build upon the concepts of freedom, democracy and justice. You can see our awards here, read our full Vision and Mission Statement here, and see a summary of our last 5 years' examination results here.

County Council Proposed Changes to Bus Services
The County Council want to change some bus services because it doesn’t have as much money as it used to. Most bus services in East Sussex are run by bus companies without money from East Sussex County Council (about 80%). East Sussex County Council pay bus companies to provide the other 20%. This is called the supported bus network.
There is now less money available to spend on these supported bus services.
The County Council have looked at who needs to use bus services and when they need to use them :
• children need buses to get to school or college
• people need buses to travel to work
• people need buses to get to services like doctors, supermarkets and banks at least twice a week
The County Council think people can still do these things even if some buses make less journeys each day or week.
The County Council is also considering charging 30% more for each bus journey. For example a child bus fare that is now £1.00 will cost about £1.30.
The Council want to hear what young people have to say about these proposals - they can give their views via the young people’s survey : https://consultation.eastsussex.gov.uk/economy-transport-environment/d7878c5e
