Kings Priory School is one of the highest performing schools in North East of England, providing high quality education to 1500 pupils aged 4 – 19. We are a school with excellent teachers, a family environment, motivated pupils and a commitment to educating the whole child both in and outside of the classroom. We are proud of our pupils who regularly achieve well above the national average in public examinations: *in 2022 at GCSE, 94% of pupils achieved a grade 4+ in English and 89% of pupils achieved a 4+ in Maths.
The School operates across neighbouring sites in the centre of the attractive coastal village of Tynemouth with short commuting links into Newcastle upon Tyne. Kings Priory School is part of Woodard Academies Trust multi-academy sponsor whose aim is to be a provider of world class education, transforming lives within and across communities. Our Christian Ethos helps to make our school a thoughtful community and we are welcoming, positive and open to pupils and staff of all faiths and none.
We do not just teach subjects, we nurture the whole individual – mind, body and spirit. Classroom learning is marked by as much attention to how you learn as what you learn, recognising that for pupils to enter the next stage of their lives, they need to learn habits of mind that sustain their curiosity, build their skills in reading, communication and problem solving. As well as holding onto the strengths of a curriculum that draws out the best possible standards across a wide range of traditional subjects, we also hope to embrace the modern world as it is now.
Our school day and ambitious and inclusive curriculum is unique with a comprehensive co-curricular programme followed by a very large number of pupils. We offer a wide range of activities from musical opportunities, to a comprehensive sport and Duke of Edinburgh’s award programme.
Pupils at Kings Priory School are well-mannered and articulate young people who work hard and achieve highly. We respect each other and celebrate our differences, always striving to put others before ourselves.
