Priory School Production

Tickets for our 2024 school show Alice, a new adaptation of Carroll's classic by Sheffield playwright Laura Wade, are now live and can be purchased following this link: https://www.trybooking.com/uk/DDCN  However, this is not Alice in Wonderland as we know it…The play opens with a funeral wake, where a grieving Alice sits unmoving in amongst an array of emotionally distant parents, annoying schoolteachers and concerned relatives all mourning the death of her older brother Joe, who died in a road traffic accident. As the classic phrases of “time’s a healer” float around the room, the depths of Alice’s grief intensify until the White Rabbit appears to set her on a quest into Wonderland: “there’s something you need to go through before you can go back.” The familiar figures of family and friends mysteriously disappear, but not for long as they reappear later through clever double casting... Carroll’s tale has always ventured beyond a fun children’s story, but Wade’s adaptation interprets Alice’s journey through Wonderland as one of deep healing and acceptance of grief and loss. Unfortunately we cannot offer ticket swaps between days, so please make sure you double check which date you are purchasing tickets for before completing check out.  DATES: Wednesday 20 March - Friday 22 March 2024 7-9pm with a 20 minute interval. LOCATION: Priory School Main Hall, Mountfield Road, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2XN. TICKETS:   £7 for adults and £3 for children.  Unreserved seating, first come, first served.  REFRESHMENTS: Available for purchase from the Friends of Priory in the Canteen.

Priory School continues to be a good school.

We are now able to share with you the final version of our Ofsted inspection report, which can be read here. We are happy to be able to confirm to you the outcome that ‘Priory School continues to be a good school.’ We were largely satisfied with the inspection process and, overall, we think the report provides a fair and accurate summary of the school's current strengths and areas for further improvement. Mr Curtis-Brignell would like to thank parents again for their support. "I look forward to continuing to lead Priory towards being the leading inclusive and creative state secondary school in the region, a school in which all students acquire powerful knowledge, feel a strong sense of social connection and belonging, and become ethically-aware citizens who are ready to confidently take their place in the world."

Christmas Jumper day

On Friday, the last day of term, we will be marking the occasion by encouraging students to wear a Christmas or festive jumper on top of their usual school uniform for the day—bright, sparkly and / or fun is the order!  Normally we do this to raise money for charity, but this year we are asking for each student to bring a tin or non-perishable item for one of our three Lewes Foodbanks . Suggested donations are: tinned meat and fish, tinned fruit and vegetables, tins of baked beans and spaghetti, pasta sauces, hot drinks (tea/coffee/hot choc), crisps/snacks/nuts/crackers for cheese, tinned sweets or biscuits or any other Christmas treats.
