Enjoy, learn, succeed
At Priestthorpe we are committed to ensuring every child receives the best possible education which enables them to achieve their potential. Our aim is to provide an education which develops the whole child both academically and socially, nurturing skills which prepare them for lifelong learning.
We firmly believe that a strong partnership between home and school begins before a child even enters the classroom. We enjoy working closely with parents and carers, providing information and opportunities for you to engage in school life and maximise the life chances for all your children.
We are proud of the rich curriculum which enables children to learn from first hand experiences both in the classroom and in the outdoor environment. Our school field provides opportunities for the children to explore wildlife and enjoy physical activity whilst developing important social skills. Learning continues at the end of the school day with a range of extra-curricular activities which enrich the children’s school experiences. We offer opportunities for the children to develop their football and other sports skills, play a variety of musical instruments or demonstrate their creativity through cheerleading, dance, choir and gardening.
Choosing a school is a very big decision for parents to make. We warmly invite you to come and look around, see us learning together and allow us to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to welcoming you to Priestthorpe Primary School.
