Another Set Of Great Exam Results!
Students at Priory School have performed fantastically well in their GCSE and other examinations. This year there has been a significant increase in the number of students achieving high grades in Mathematics (79%) and English (80%) which are essential to future progress. The school also saw strong performances in Sciences, Languages, Humanities and the Arts.
Headteacher Tony Smith commented :
“We are delighted that the students’ hard work and perseverance has been rewarded with outstanding results. We are especially pleased with the progress that students have made, with over 40% making better than good progress in English and Maths. I would like to thank the students for their commitment and dedication to their studies. These results would not be possible without the support of parents and the dedication of staff. We are pleased that the vast majority of students have been able to progress to their preferred destinations.”
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.
