The curriculum at Priory is broad and balanced. We ensure a broad and balanced curriculum, supplemented by enrichment and other activities, delivered in conjunction with our partners to guarantee a curriculum better matched to all students' learning needs with personalisation at its core.

OFSTED said, “The personal, social and health education programme is good and students value the way this is delivered through the 'super learning' days. Curricular and extra-curricular activities are significantly enhanced through the specialist college provision and the students' take-up of the wide range of opportunities in and outside school is good.”


Key Stage 3

Throughout Years 7, 8 and 9 our students follow, a curriculum structured to the needs of the individual. We have increased the provision for English and Maths, as we believe that improving key skills of literacy and numeracy will improve engagement and the ability to access the curriculum for all students and will improve progression for students. The mostly Gifted and Talented students are identified from KS2 data and monitored by subject leaders to ensure they are suitably challenged in order to push their academic progress further.


Key Stage 4

At the end of year 9 pupils choose 3 option subjects which they will then study for 3 hours each per week in Year 10 and 11, in addition to English, Maths, Science, PE and RE. All pupils have to choose either Geography, History or French as one of their option choices and we strongly encourage as many pupils as possibly to study the English Baccalaureate
