Our Wider Curriculum
At The Priors School, we focus on providing children with a wide range of experiences to develop their curiosity, love of learning and provide opportunities that they might not otherwise experience.
The arts are very important to us as a school. We employ a music teacher, Mr Hudson, to teach curriculum music to children in Years 1 to 6. As part of this, Mr Hudson leads whole class tuition for the children to learn how to play the recorder, the glockenspiel or the ukulele. Mr Hudson also leads peripatetic music lessons for individual or smaller groups of children, allowing them the opportunity to learn how to play the guitar, recorder or keyboard. We also place an importance on art and design at The Priors, as we understand how important it is for the children to develop these skills. We often bring in external artists and technicians to work with the children to produce some outstanding art work, such as our sculptures in the Wild Garden and the Jubilee Willow Tree in the school entrance.
We place a high value on sports at The Priors and ensure the children have a wide range of opportunities to learn sports and also compete in them. We have offered many different sporting events over the past two years, such as archery, orienteering, dance, gymnastics, musical theatre and indoor rowing, as well as more traditional sports such as cross country, football, netball and cricket.
