Harrold Priory Middle School

We are justly very proud of our school. Visitors are always impressed by the positive and friendly learning environment. We provide engaging teaching and outstanding pastoral care for the children and we achieve excellent standards.

Beyond the classroom, our sporting achievements, provision for the gifted and talented, musical and dramatic traditions are also really second to none! We provide our own traditional values but it is the way we work together across the federation that is almost unique. We share leadership, teaching and administration, allowing us to offer the pupils a remarkable curriculum at both key stages 2 and 3. As the pupils journey through the school, their learning will become personalised as they reveal their strengths and develop their interests. Their attitudes to learning are excellent.

Students’ progress accelerates as they move through the school and they make exceptional progress in Years 7 and 8, especially in mathematics and English. Teachers use creative approaches to inspire students and consequently their motivation is high. The school creates a calm and purposeful learning environment and students feel very safe.
