Priory School
Sir Harrys Road, Birmingham,B15 2UR

96% of pupils gained A*-C in five or more subjects at GCSE

Welcome to our school - a school which is very special to me.  It’s special because of the way we view each child in our care.  We believe passionately in the uniqueness of every individual.  Each pupil has special gifts and talents.  Our job is to nurture these gifts – to find out what your child CAN do, not what he or she can’t, to celebrate each success and applaud determination, commitment and effort.

It was the nuns of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, founded by Cornelia Connelly, who opened the school on its present site in 1936.  No longer run by the Society, the school changed its name to Priory School in 2001.  

Like our founders, we continue to welcome children of all faiths and abilities within a Catholic tradition that ensures respect for the individual and delivers achievement for all. 

This academic year marks an historic moment for our school as boys entered Year 7 of the Senior School for the first time.   


With the new boys comes a new teaching model – Together but Separate – in which girls and boys are educated separately in the core subjects such as English and Mathematics, whilst together for subjects such as History and Geography.

Of course we're very proud of our academic results which makes us one of the top schools in Birmingham.  However, what drives us is a commitment to delivering success for every child entrusted in our care. 

We're as dedicated to providing the specialist support for children who struggle in the classroom with challenges such as dyslexia as we are to stretching the academically gifted to exceed their potential.  

We are committed to widening opportunity and have introduced a new scholarship scheme to ensure more children can benefit from the Priory experience.

At Priory, academic life is complemented by our dedicated performing arts suite, our thriving sports programme and our extensive out of school clubs.  Children also benefit from the school's 14 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, including an orchard and pond area, which provides a rich resource for lessons as well as a stunning backdrop for our summer performances and events.

Pupils are encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life, creating the self-confident and well-rounded individuals which are the hallmark of our school.

I do hope you enjoy visiting our website (do please take an audio visual tour with myself and the pupils) and do come and see us in action at one of our Open Days or make an appointment for a personal visit. 

I look forward to meeting you.

Priory Poppets

At Priory Poppets we provide a warm and stimulating environment in which your babies can grow into inquisitive and expressive toddlers.

At a very young age there is a great emphasis on learning through play, the messier the better! Children's physical skills are developed in their very own adventure play area set within the school's landscaped grounds and orchard which we regularly use for nature walks.

When children reach our pre-school year (aged 3-4) we begin to prepare them for the start of formal education, offering a curriculum structured around the Early Learning Goals.

Your child's daily diary keeps you up to date and you'll receive regular invitations to coffee mornings and our seasonal productions so that you can share in your child's achievements.

Within our newly refurbished early years suite a flexible range of provision tailored to your needs is offered.  We provide care from 8am - 6pm, during school hours, for 51 weeks or term-time only. 

For more information come to our Open Day on Wednesday 16th January 2008 or to order a prospectus please click here
