About Walton Priory Middle School

Walton Priory is an all-inclusive, equal opportunity community middle school in which students feel both happy and secure. Our ethos encourages all children to recognise their own self worth and that of everyone else in the school. Children are encouraged to take a genuine pride in their own achievements, realise their own potential and celebrate the success of others. Working in partnership with parents and carers, our teaching and support team have the very highest expectations of all our pupils, whose self-confidence, trustworthiness and self esteem are developed throughout their time here; so that they are thoroughly prepared not only for the next stage of their educational career, but as 'Beacons' well into their adult lives. Our students are taught to be: resilient, resourceful, respectful, reflective, collaborative and are expected to positively participate. We offer a broad curriculum, supplemented with many extra-curricular activities and enjoy many links with the business and social community.
