Priory is a leading school in East Sussex with Arts, Language and Science College status, rated "A Good School" 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.

End Of Term
Wednesday 22nd July is the last day of the Summer Term and will be a non-uniform day for students, ending at 12:15pm. We would like to send best wishes for a very enjoyable holiday to all our students, parents and carers. Thank you for all your hard work and support - see you in September!
Equipment Kit List and Programme of Study For Key Stage 3 Students
Please check the 'Kit List' document to identify what equipment your child will need for PE from September 2015. It is advisable for you to check the relevant 'Programme of Study' to see when in the academic year your child will require the various items of kit.
When opening the Programme of Study document please scroll down until you see the correct band for your child (e.g. 'AB' or 'CD') as the PE timetable is different for students in different PE classes.
The PE timetable for Term's 5 and 6 is shown at the end of each attachment and is the same for all students in each year group regardless of the band of their class.

Please note that Capita, who route our InTouch email messages to parents, experienced a network problem last week which prevented some messages getting through from a number of East Sussex schools. They have now resolved this issue. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. If you have any particular queries please contact your child's Tutor or House team.
Royal Festival Hall School Trip
The school trip to The Royal Festival Hall on Monday 20th July leaves at 7.30am. Please be aware that students need to be in school and ready to leave at this time.
East Sussex Credit Union
At the June meeting of the Friends of Priory Committee, Nikki Plummer from the East Sussex Credit Union attended to tell us more about the services they provide. An ethical not-for-profit savings and loans cooperative owned by its members, the East Sussex Credit Union offers services that provide a viable alternative to predatory lending practices and bank account alternatives for those who might not be able to access mainstream banks.
We hope the information will be of interest to parents. We were particularly interested in providing information and options for parents struggling to save for uniform, school trips, or just wanting advice and support on money management.
