As a Church of England Priory Academy, the journey we plot for our children and staff can be summed up beautifully by marrying the school motto with our distinctive Christian vision, to enable all of us to flourish. Our vision is perhaps most easily encapsulated in the seven strands of the SIAMS Inspection Framework.

Aspiring to learn with courage and faith, so we can live life in all its fullness

Share the power of our deepening faith through discipleship and service in our school, the community and the wider world
