Priory Church of England Primary School provides education for pupils between the ages of 3 and 11 years.

The school is a Church of England (Controlled) school.  This means that the school is under the control of the Local Authority (LA) but that it is able to offer a distinct Christian ethos.  The school has strong links with Trentham and Hanford Parishes.  We believe we place the right emphasis on Christian values – placing the child and family at the centre of our work.

The school provides education in purpose built premises occupying an excellent site to the south of the city.  The school is positioned close to major road networks, being situated close to the junction of the A34/A500/A50.  The school has extremely generous and well maintained grounds.  On site is the Trentford Children’s Centre, which offers free support and classes to parents of children from age 0 to 5.

Currently the school provides:

  • 15 Classrooms – all fitted out with IT facilities including internet access, laptops, visualisers and interactive whiteboards
  • Two Halls
  • Two libraries
  • Separate playgrounds for younger/older children equipped with outdoor play equipment
  • A 52 place Nursery
  • A Sports Hall with full changing facilities including showers
  • A purpose built ‘Foundation Unit’ that includes provision for Nursery and Reception children in a self-contained, secure environment
  • Extensive playing fields and sports areas. We believe our school grounds are some of the best of any school in Stoke-on-Trent.

We are a fully extended school which means that we provide all aspects of the core service as defined by the Government.  This includes:

  • Wrap around care – Priory All Stars.  This is a school run organisation that provides before and after school care at affordable prices.  Priory All Stars operates holiday clubs which are open most days of the year.  The school works closely with Priory All Stars and believes it offers an excellent service to parents / carers.
  • Study support – We provide additional support for children’s learning outside of school hours.  We have been awarded the “Activemark” – a national award that recognises our work in supporting physical well-being.
  • Community access – many groups use our school’s facilities in the evenings and at weekends.  A number of these groups promote physical well-being
  • Parenting support – we hold regular meetings with parents to explain what work children are doing in school, how they are taught and what parents may do to support learning at home.
  • Swift and easy referral – we provide access to the school nurse, educational officers and a range of other professional services.
