GCSE Results 2019

Students at Priory School have produced some magnificent GCSE results this year. There have been exceptional achievements in many subjects including English, Maths, Sciences, Languages, History, Geography, Dance, PE, Art and Music. Executive Headteacher Tony Smith commented: “Congratulations to the students, parents and staff on a wonderful set of results this year. The high grades achieved are just reward for their commitment to hard work and perseverance throughout their time at Priory School. There has been considerable uncertainty surrounding the recent reforms to GCSE, which have meant that it is harder than ever to achieve higher grades.  Our students have responded admirably to the challenge of the revised specifications with 38% achieving at least one grade 8 and/or 9 across the range of subjects taken. 80% achieved at least a grade 4 in both maths and English. We are delighted that so many students exceeded their personal targets. We wish all our ex-students the best of luck for the future whatever they pursue!”

GCSE Results Collection

Students will be able to collect their GCSE results from school between 10am - midday on Thursday 22 August. Ideally students will be able to collect their results in person, however if this is not possible, any uncollected results will be posted home that afternoon, first class, to the address held on record by the school. If you have recently moved, please ensure you have informed us before Friday 19 July. In exceptional circumstances, and only with prior notification from the student, results can be collected by a parent. Students must write a letter to the Exams Officer stating who will collect their results. The letter should be signed by the student, and all letters requesting this must be received by the Exams Officer by Thursday 18 July. An email will not be sufficient. The parent must bring photographic id with them on 22 August. Students cannot collect results for other students. Please email the Exams Officer Ms Harris if you have any questions.

Help Raise Money For CRY With Healthy Hearts In June!

In March 2018, we ran a heart screening day in conjunction with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) and Wave Leisure. We are trying to raise funds to hold another day. Healthy Hearts is a month-long event supporting CRY. CRY undertake ground-breaking research into the causes of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) and also provide local screenings to help detect those with undiagnosed heart problems aged between 14 and 35. Healthy Hearts are hosting a number of challenges in June including swimming, running, walking and cycling which you can get sponsored for. Anyone can take part in these challenges, ether at Wave Leisure or elsewhere. Find out more using the Healthy Hearts website. Please note: This is a Healthy Hearts event - Wave is supporting the event by providing an optional venue for the activities
