Children and staff will be donating £1 each to wear their jeans on Jeans for Genes Day 2018 which takes place on Friday 21 September.
We all inherit a range of talents, skills and personality traits through our genes – they’re part of what makes us who we are. But half a million children in the UK face the daily challenges of a genetic disorder. By pulling on a pair of jeans, we will be helping to fund the vital care and support services that transform their lives.
Jeans for Genes Day invites everyone across the UK to wear their jeans for the Day in return for a small donation.
Priory Academy is celebrating its best ever GCSE results, an impressive achievement in a year where examination reforms have made it more challenging for students. These wonderful results include 82% grades 9-4 in English and maths and over 70% of all entries being awarded grades 5 and above!
Of course, these splendid results reflect the hard work and commitment of our students and the staff who support them.
It has been truly delightful to see so many overjoyed students and parents collecting their results today!
Many congratulations to all our wonderful students, staff and parents and a special well done to those who have achieved outstanding individual performances:
* Klaudia Sokolowska: seven 9s, three 8s, one A* and three As
* Lucy Vermeer: three 9s, seven 8s and one B
* Emily Francis: six 9s, three 8s, two 7s, one A and one B
* Bethany Norris: two 9s, five 8s, one 7, one 5 and one B

Student in 10L have been awarded a reward mufti this Friday, 13th July. The remaining year groups will be confirmed asap and their mufti will be on the last day of term.
Our Year 11 leavers had their Prom on Friday 29th June. We are so proud of them and are pleased they had this opportunity to “let their hair down” after all their GCSE Exams. We wish them all the very best for in their future endeavours.
According to the forecast the weather is due to be very hot again next week. Students will also have the choice to wear Priory PE kit instead of their uniform during this period of hot weather – if your child is on a school visit we will update uniform requirements separately. Branded sportswear and leggings are not suitable alternatives to the Priory PE kit.
Students should also bring hats, sun cream and water bottles to school with them. They will not be allowed out of lessons to get drinks from the fountains so there is an expectation that students bring bottles which they can refill at break and lunchtimes.
