I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Priory Academy. Nestled in the heart of Dunstable, in a picturesque setting overlooking the historic Priory Church, our school possesses a remarkable charm.

We follow the ‘values-based’ education philosophy, and promote and nurture our children to have a sense of respect for self and others. Combining our traditional educational ethos with specialist subject teachers and modern facilities, we provide a first class learning environment.

Through our endeavours in raising standards, our children have achieved the best Key Stage 2 SATs results in Bedfordshire for the past few years.

Starting from September 2014, we will welcome our first year 9 students, most of whom, we have got to know and nurture since the age of 9. Priding ourselves on high expectations, excellent teaching, continuity of learning and building on our past successes, we will strive to deliver the best possible educational outcomes for our students up to the age of 16.

I hope that you will enjoy looking at our website, and that it can provide you with an insight into life at Priory.

Mrs M. Smith, Headteacher
