Kings Priory School is an all-through school providing high quality education to pupils aged 4 to 19. The result of a merger between a thriving independent school and an outstanding community primary school, we are an inclusive, non-fee paying School with excellent teachers, a family environment, motivated pupils and a commitment to educating the whole child, both in and outside of the classroom. Kings Priory School recently placed as joint-top performing state school in the region for its GCSE performance in 2016. This comes after The Chronicle named us as having the joint best GCSE results in the North East last year, with 92% of pupils achieving at least 5 A*-C GCSEs including Maths and English. Amongst other top headlines, 96% of pupils received an A*-C in Mathematics and in English.
This is underpinned by the Chapter system which helps to create a strong sense of attachment for pupils and staff within these schools within a school.
