We are an oversubscribed 11-18 co-educational Foundation School with 1,250 students on role. The school is part of the Post 16 Hitchin consortium with over 600 hundred students. The school is situated in the greenbelt on a 27-acre site with ample parking. The market town of Hitchin is a highly sought-after destination with excellent local amenities and transport links. Central London and Cambridge are all within 30 minutes’ travel by rail and our nearest airport is 20 minutes by road.
At The Priory School we aim to embed our core values of Responsibility, Respect and Resilience by delivering outstanding learning opportunities and building meaningful relationships with our stakeholders. In our last Ofsted inspection the school was praised for creating ‘a highly inclusive school, where there are consistently high expectations of what all pupils can achieve’. We have created a learning environment that raises students’ aspirations and promotes academic achievement where ‘pupils feel they belong, regardless of race, religion or sexuality’.
