Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is organised in tutor groups. The boxes are due in next Thursday (25th) - the tutor groups are making a box for either of the age groups their house have been given and they can include things like toys, toiletries, educational supplies and other items such as sweets, hats, gloves etc.

Each tutor group is trying to fill a box and have the £5 to send it, so students need to try to bring either an item in or some money towards the postage. A lot of the tutor groups have arranged this between themselves so they know what each of them is going to contribute towards the box. Any questions, please speak to your tutor. Thank you.

‘As we approach the end of the third year of The Telford Priory School we are delighted to advise you that a commemorative trip for Staff and Students has been organised, offering an opportunity to spend the day at one of a range of leisure venues on Tuesday 17th July and for those attaining 100% attendance (September through to May Half Term – 25th May, 2018) an option for an additional trip to Alton Towers has also been organised on Wednesday 18th July. 

This year we are offering opportunities to visit one of a number of the attractions above, click on the ‘letters link’ to read the details of each trip, including transportation information, prices and deadline dates.  Each trip is led and managed by one of our four Heads of House.  The number of places for each trip is limited, and you and your child can choose between one of four options. 

Those students who choose not to attend any trip will be expected to attend school as usual.  Likewise, students will be expected to attend school at the usual start time of 8.25am regardless as to which trip they may wish to attend.  The Airspace trip to Wolverhampton will return back to school at approximately 1.00pm.  Students will be expected to remain in school for the remainder of the afternoon and will be dismissed at 2.35pm in the usual way.  For all students participating in the trips, school uniform will not need to be worn.  Details of appropriate casual wear will be released to you in a subsequent letter.

Scientist in the NHS

Here are some of the photos from our NHS trip yesterday. Students travelled to New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton and learnt about how cancer develops in the body, and how scientists diagnose it (even getting to see a real tumour in a lung) and treat it. They had a tour of a hospital laboratory, and learnt about the different work pathologists do and what steps they need to take to follow in their footsteps.
