Portsmouth Uni Summer School 2014

In June this year, ten Year 10 pupils had the opportunity to attend the University of Portsmouth three day Residential Summer School, alongside several other schools in the Hampshire area.

This gave our pupils an insight on how University life could be for them.  They had an absolutely fantastic time and came back into school with lots of stories to tell and a clearer idea on University life and the possibilities that are there for the future.

We are hoping to be able to send ten more pupils next year.

Crew, the teaching and learning journal of Priory School

crewHere is the second issue of Crew, the teaching and learning journal of Priory School.  Crew is a collection of articles written by Priory staff, reviewing training events they have organised or attended, sharing experiences of best practice in the classroom and celebrating examples of pupil progress. Our hope is that this resource will serve as a springboard for enhanced professional development for staff and nurture cross-curricular collaboration.

UPDATE: Industrial Action 10 July 2014

School open for Y7 only, 0820-1350

As you may be aware, two unions have called strike action for next Thursday 10 July.  Employees are not obliged to inform their employer if they intend to strike, so it is difficult for the school to know with any certainty who precisely will be at work on that day.

Given the information that I currently have available, the school will be closed to Y8, 9 and 10 pupils on the strike day, as there will not be enough staff to take classes and supervise the pupils.


Y10 pupils on Work Experience placements outside Priory are to attend work placements as usual. Those with no placements should not attend school. Pupils with internal placements will be notified individually about whether to attend or not.

The strike action is not against Priory School, but against the government and is part of a national programme of industrial action.
