Information about the school:
Many of our children come to us having experienced a level of trauma and with attachment difficulties related to early years. Often these early experiences have meant a very disrupted educational experience and our expertise means that we are able to provide an educational approach that will enable our children to make progress in all areas of their well-being as well as academic progress.
The aim of The Old Priory School is to provide a child centred environment that meets the individual learning needs of all students. We do this through a varied and creative approach to the curriculum that develops physical, cognitive, emotional, and social skills. Lessons are made fun and interactive with a focus on emotional development and with a teacher and high ratio of learning support staff in each class, children are given the care and support they need. We believe that by creating a nurturing environment that focuses on building quality relationships with students, they will flourish and achieve their full potential.
We look forward to hearing from you
