Year 11 "Prepare to Pass"

rmThank you to all the parents who attended the Resilient Me Workshop on 1st November. The workshop covered the memory tools that students were taught in their session and gave helpful advice on how to support our children during this important year. The presentation is available here. Please take a moment to have a look and ask your child to talk you through the session; regular short reviews of information are, as we learnt, the best way to commit things to memory!

Senior Citizens Tea Party

sctp2018On Friday 5th October we held our annual senior citizens tea party, and we had about 60 visitors who were made up of grandparents, neighbours and residents from local residential homes. The event is hosted by Year 7 students who help with the serving of tea and cake; there is a free tombola and the visitors were each given a little posy of flowers. The visitors were also treated to a variety of performances by our very talented students. One of the comments from one of our guests - So lovely to spend an hour with the children and hear them perform. Love the way they encourage and support each other. I do hope you feel it is all worthwhile because it must take up a considerable amount of your time. We certainly think it's a most important community event which cements that special relationship between young and old which can be such a force for good in these difficult times.

 

 

Year 7 Parents and Carers - How to Access Show My Homework

smhwIf you are a parent or carer, the simplest way to see your child’s homework is to use their login details (the same login they use in school). Please ask your child if you don't already have these - they aren't meant to be secret from parents!

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!”
