Priory School Summer Examination Success

gcse2018Students at Priory School have produced some stunning results this year! The headline measures are outstanding with 66% achieving a grade 9-5 in both English and Maths and 85% achieving a grade 9-4 in the two subjects combined. A whopping 31% achieved grades 9-7 with a total of 230 grade 9s.

There have been exceptional achievements in all subjects with exceptional performances in Maths, English and Science.

Headteacher Tony Smith commented:

“The students have worked so hard and their efforts have been rewarded with stunning results. We have had significant improvements in headline figures compared to previous years with 85% achieving a grade 9-4 in Maths and English alongside a large number of high grades in all the subjects.

To have achieved such impressive results with so many new, increasingly demanding examinations is testimony not only to the efforts of students but also to staff and parents who play a crucial role in preparing and supporting the students throughout their education.

We wish all our ex-students the best of luck as they progress to life after Priory!”

End of Exam Season

books1I know that many parents and carers will have bought text books and revision guides for many subjects over the last year and I am writing to ask if you would consider donating any which your child no longer needs. This would be very much appreciated so that other students can benefit from using them. Actions such as these really help with the challenging financial situations all schools find themselves in and for many, purchasing new textbooks and revision guides has become an unaffordable luxury. If you are able to help then please could I ask you to leave any donations at Reception before the end of the school year? Mrs Cowlin (Assistant Headteacher)
