Mr Eastham is delighted as, for the third year running, Priory has a full intake.

In September, once again, all 180 places will be filled which Headteacher Mr Eastham and the staff are proud of.

“This is the third year running that we will be full and it’s brilliant,” he said. “It shows the confidence in the school from the community which we serve and in the education and experience we provide.”

Mrs Farley, Transition & Integration Manager said: “All pupils should have already received a welcome letter, and will shortly be receiving more information over the coming term about the next stages of their journey to Priory.  I have started my visits to the primary schools and I’m really excited to meet all 180 pupils and their teachers to find out about our new Year 7s”.

There has been substantial building work at the school over recent years with new technology and science blocks, a refurbished gym, and last September the opening of a £1.4m purpose-built ICT & Computer Science building known as The Hex. 

“We are delighted that the dedication of staff is paying off with our increased numbers and the new facilities do also make a difference to the learning experience,” added Mr Eastham. “It’s an exciting time to be at Priory.”
