Essential maintenance to the school's computer network 22nd to 26th August - see below
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.

Excellent GCSE Results!
All at Priory are absolutely delighted by another set of excellent examination results. 2014 has seen the students achieve a fantastic set of grades as well as many making impressive progress over their time here.
Our results are testimony to the hard work of students and staff and the school’s high aspirations for every student. We are grateful for the support provided by parents to ensure that we all work towards a common goal. 84% achieved A*-C in English and 74% in Mathematics, with 68% achieving 5+ A*-C including both English and Mathematics. Nearly a third of the students achieved 5 or more subjects at A* and A grade.
Headteacher Tony Smith commented :
“We are incredibly proud of these results which are a great testament to the hard work and dedication of the students, staff and parents who have put in so much this year. In addition to the examination results we are impressed by the character, confidence and maturity our students have developed in their time as part of Priory School. We wish all our students well for the future.”

Using Our Contact Form
The school has recently been experiencing high levels of both incoming and outgoing junk email traffic, caused by automated spammers using this website's Contact form. To help prevent this, like many institutions we have now enabled a Captcha system on the form. We understand this is a minor inconvenience but it will help us to provide the best service we can for genuine emails from our parents and carers.
Maintenance affecting External Access
Essential maintenance to the school's computer network will be taking place from Friday 22nd August to Tuesday 26th August inclusive. There will be no external access available during this period and this website may also be temporarily unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience.
