Stranger Danger

There have been reports of unknown males and females loitering around schools at the beginning and end of the day, The Telford Priory School takes this extremely seriously and does deploy staff outside of school at the beginning and end of the day.

Year 8 Flexible Learning Day – Create your own Eiffel Tower!


On Monday, Year 8 students were tasked with designing and creating an Eiffel Tower made entirely out of newspaper and sellotape. They were even required to add a lift for passengers! Students needed to do research to find out how best to use newspaper to construct a tower of around 1 metre with the strength to be able to stand freely. A real challenge! Well done to all students who completed a structure but we think this is the best...

'Class of 2017' Prom




The Telford Priory School ‘Class of 2017’ prom was held at The Holiday Inn’, Telford on Friday 7th July.

All of the students looked absolutely amazing and it was fantastic to see them all have such a great time, celebrating their success and looking forward to the next chapter in their lives.
They were all an absolute credit to the school and we received numerous compliments about their conduct, including the following from the professional photographer who attended the event:

“I would just like to say how well behaved, polite and pleasant all of the guests were…they behaved impeccably and were a real credit to the school. It was an absolute pleasure to be there!”

Students had the opportunity to take away a complimentary photograph on the evening and further prints will be available from Steve Elliott Images very soon. We will also share more photographs as soon as we are able to do so and if students have any that they would like to share we would love to see them.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the parents and staff who supported this fabulous event and we look forward to seeing the students again soon to celebrate further successes with them on results day in August.
