At Penwortham Priory Academy we pride ourselves on a strong and successful transition programme. This allows our new students a smooth and enjoyable transition from primary school to Priory.

Our programme of transition is wide ranging and spans the full academic year. We work very closely with our feeder primary schools throughout the year as well as a number of opportunities for Years 4, 5 and 6 students to visit Priory.

A number of our staff work in the primary schools on exciting projects including ICT, Maths, Science, Physical Education and Design & Technology. One of our Modern Foreign Languages teachers also practices in two local primary schools.

Mrs Farley, Transition Manager, can be contacted via email at

Pupils starting September 2021 (transition form)

We ask that, to aid the transition process, parents with a confirmed place for their child complete the online transition information form <<via this link>>.  Please complete one form per pupil. This is an extremely valuable piece of information for us to have as it offers us the parent view, and we feel you know your children best. We will also then be able to distribute further notices and updates to the email address provided on the form (please ensure you check your spam folders initially).
