THE PRIORY CHARITY FUNDRAISING
Achievement for all, guided by God.
At The Priory, we aim to promote our school vision, ‘Achievement For All, Guided By God’ through our work in our local, national and international community. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to be an advocate for change and as a school, impact the wider area. Charity and community events are run by the Faith team, School Council, House Captains and Sports captains to ensure that there is a wide representation of all pupils which they feedback to throughout the year.
