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.

Parent View 

During the transition process we are keen to gain a parent's view of their child. Therefore, please complete the online pupil transition information form which can be found by clicking the link below.  Please complete one form per pupil. This is an extremely valuable piece of information for us to have as it offers us your view, and we believe you know your children best.

Summer School 


Summer School will run from Mon, 22 to Weds, 24 August. This exciting opportunity is open to all incoming Year 7 pupils.  We hope that as many pupils as possible attend – even if just for one of the days (although they are welcome to join us for all three).  All enrolments need to be completed by Friday, 27 May.
