School Success in Sport and Music June 2019

With nearly a third of the school involved in one of our choirs, it’s no surprise that Music continues to flourish here at The Priory. We won the New Milton Music Festival Ensemble Division and our choir finished ‘Highly Commended’. Thanks so much to Mrs Moss and Miss Deay.

The full School Choir – the playground is the only space big enough to fit them all in!

For the first time in a number of years the school got through to the County Finals in Kwik Cricket. After success in Tag Rugby, skiing and tri-golf we look forward to the 2019-20 season!

The Grand Hub Opening April 2019

Months of hard work and negotiations finally resulted in the first new building at The Priory School for a number of years – our purpose built Nurture and small group space.

Watch the ramp – but the doors are open!

School Conference Jan 2019

On the 15th January, the school held its second annual school conference. It was an opportunity for school leaders to listen to what parents, children and Governors think about our school. We were pleased to hear about our many strengths and it was helpful hearing about some of the areas we need to improve. Better never stops!

We also took the opportunity to share our rationale for our curriculum redesign. A working party will be established in the next few weeks to see how we can incorporate ‘activity passports’ into our new curriculum.

The presentation is attached below:

Most improved Schools in Dorset – September 2018

We were delighted to receive the news that based on our 2017-18 year 6 results, we are one of the most improved schools in Dorset.  This backs up the Church Inspection in June 2018, which reported that we are GOOD at meeting the needs of all learners.

Socrates said that the secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new!
