The Telford Priory School, part of the Community Academies Trust, in Wrockwardine Wood, Telford, is a school which believes in the power of education.
The school’s vision is ‘Powerful Knowledge for Global Citizens’ and these two pillars encapsulate all that the school strives to offer.
Headteacher, Stacey Jordan, said: “Our school has been on an incredible journey, which proves that our leadership team have been able to plan and demonstrate effective action to continue to make our school so special; we really do have a committed staff body.
“We believe in a powerful knowledge curriculum for all students and the ambition of our curriculum is well researched.”
She went on to say: “Our school is not only about this amazing knowledge which everyone is entitled to access, but also the arts. We are so proud of all our work in this area and have been recognised by Sir Elton John and the Education Business Awards, who nominated us recently as being the ‘Best Music School’ in the country. This kind of accolade is testament
to the hard work of our staff and students and the opportunities which we offer; it makes me so proud.”
The school is primed to provide ‘Powerful Knowledge for Global Citizens’ as the newly built school enters its seventh year. As the name of the trust implies, community is at the heart of the school, which regularly hosts popular and free community events.
The school focuses on the ‘Global Citizenship’ aspect of its vision with regular charity events, fundraising, community performances, cultural celebrations and impressive food drives. Visitors are welcome to take a virtual look around the many modern facilities, which include a recording studio, 3G pitch, athletics track, swimming pool, STEM equipment, professional 300-seat theatre and dance studio.
With such a wide range of sporting facilities, it’s little surprise that ‘The Telford Priory School’ is making its sporting mark within the county. The year 10 boys’ football team made history in recent years by being the first team from their school to lift the Shropshire County Cup.
Sport is a large part of the extracurricular program, including girls’ only clubs, boxing and cricket, but if sport isn’t your thing, the school strives to provide something for everyone.
There are over 50 free clubs per week including Warhammer, cookery, soul band, psychology and chess! The Telford Priory School keeps close links with both local primary schools and higher education providers. Each half term the school runs a primary project or tournament, as well as providing teaching and support skills in the classroom.
Covid restrictions permitting, careers trips are often and varied, including university open days, sporting days for talented young people and Enterprise challenge days.
The Telford Priory School is committed to ensuring that it provides a strong and ambitious curriculum for all, which caters for individual students’ needs.
