The school is part of the Laurus Trust (September 2023), a multi-academy trust, whose shared vision provides the framework and core values for our secondary schools.

Our 2023 GCSE results showed 74% of students achieved both English and Maths GCSEs at grades 4 – 9 and 56% achieved this measure at the gold standard, ‘strong’ pass of grade 5 and better. 16% of students succeeded at grades 7 -9. 24% of the total grades achieved were at grades 7 – 9 and 61% of grades were at 5 – 9.

Priestnall is very much a part of the wider community and the partnership between students, staff and parents/carers is vital to the continued success of the school. We endeavour to provide students with the best possible opportunities to succeed and develop a love of learning that will last and that will support them as they take their next steps in life.

We have high expectations of all members of our school community, and we provide opportunities for students to engage with the wider life of the school and, importantly, to develop the qualities, attitudes and habits which will allow them to flourish.
