Come and find out about…
- How the school teaches e-safety

We look forward to seeing you! You can download the poster here.



E-Safety Survey for Parents and Carers

e-safe1If you have a few minutes to spare, please complete our short survey. No personal details are required. E-safety is a fast-moving field and Priory School continually reviews the advice it gives to students. Part of that process is to ask for feedback from parents and carers; your help is greatly appreciated and will help to inform our best practice.

Please note this survey is live for two weeks and will therefore close on Monday 13th March

Lewes Food Bank


Huge thanks to everyone who sent in items for our collection towards the Lewes foodbank. The items were very gratefully received and will be distributed to members of our local community from the Phoenix Centre foodbank. I know that a number of students were disappointed to have forgotten their items, so we would encourage you to take them to the many drop-off points around Lewes or to the centres themselves.
