Sport at Priory

As a school, we are very proud of our sporting achievements. Sport receives a high profile in the school, and we are proud of having achieved the Sainsbury School Sports Gold Award, for the fourth year in a row - this is in recognition of the opportunities for sport within school, and the many competitions we are involved in.

There are a wide variety of sports to get involved in:

- Cross-Country

- Athletics

- Football

- Hockey

- Cricket

- TAG Rugby .... and more!

One of our highlights during the year is the County Cross Country Championships - which we organize and hold at Priory Park - a short distance from the school. We are usually joined by around 60 other schools. Last year, over 800 children competed - it was a magnificent event!

We are also keen to inspire our children with sporting visitors and we have enjoyed visits from Ian Rowe, Atlantic Rower, and also Olympic athletes: Goldie Sayers, Larry Achike, Christian Malcolm and Charlie Walker, Paralympian,  over recent years.

We were named School of the Year in Hunts Post Sports Award in July 2014 and again, in July 2015 - we were thrilled! 

The school, like others, receives Sports Funding from the government, as part of the Olympic Legacy. For details on how this is spent, please see:
