Firstly, welcome to the Priory School. We are a voluntary-aided Church of England school for mixed pupils aged 11-18 years old. We currently educate 800 students.
Our school has a range of excellent academic facilities to support our students’ learning, and we offer a wealth of engaging extracurricular activities too. We encourage students to make use of all learning opportunities, and are proud to have on site a 25m swimming pool, sports clubs that include rugby, trampolining and table tennis, music classes that include steel and African drumming and rock band, as well as additional groups for lego, craft, chess and more.
We are hugely proud of our school; our teachers, our learning environments, our community involvement. But most of all we are proud of our students. They consistently demonstrate outstanding rates of progress, both academically and personally, and we are thrilled with all they achieve.
At the heart of our school are a set of values that guide us daily, inspired by our status as a Church of England School. We educate for life in all its fullness, and we do so in the Priory Way; with wisdom, hope, dignity and community collaboration. These values form part of our commitment to students, and also our expectations of them. We build on this solid foundation with inspiring learning experiences, and with hard work and dedication our students progress and thrive.
The Priory School has exceptional leadership, strong values, inspiring teachers and a true dedication to our students wellbeing. Academically we are rated as a ‘Good’ provider by Ofsted, and we hope to be recognised as an ‘Outstanding’ provider by 2022.

We gladly welcome students from all our local primary schools. The majority of our current students have come from St Paul’s, St Martin’s, St John’s, The Weald and Surrey Hills, but we also have students from Powell Corderoy, St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and North Downs. We are a Church of England school, but we pride ourselves on welcoming children both with and without faith.
