What the school says...

Converted to an academy 2011.

What the parents say...

This is a superb school. We moved from another part of the country where our 2 older children had completed their secondary educated in an Outstanding (Ofsted) school. We enrolled our youngest child in Priestlands and he has not looked back. At his first academic review it was clear how pupil focused the teaching staff were, in setting individual goals. Our son regularly refers to teachers as 'legends'. If singling out one he has found his year 11/12 Astronomy teacher inspiring.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
