The Priory are extremely proud to have maintained the GOLD SPORTS MARK award for 5 years in a row. As a result we have now been awarded the PLATINUM SPORTS MARK AWARD!  A huge thank you to Miss Worner for all her hard work on this over the last academic year. 

 

The Mayor of Merton Councillor Mary Curtin and our Chair of Governors Mr Andrew Mills came in to school to present our certificate and help celebrate our achievement.
