A message from our Headteacher

At Priestnall, we put our students at the centre of everything we do.  Our collective philosophy is to provide an ‘education for life’, ensuring that our students are fully prepared – in terms of knowledge, skills, qualifications and confidence, in mind and body – for whatever their next step may be.

High quality teaching is the foundation upon which our success has been built, and I am very proud to be the Headteacher of a dedicated, talented and innovative team of staff who are constantly striving to improve on our already good practice.  Students at Priestnall enjoy an exciting, diverse and inspiring curriculum, and also have countless opportunities to enrich their school experience though our extensive extra-curricular programme.

As well as guiding our young people to achieve academic excellence, we provide outstanding pastoral support through our successful ‘college’ system, which is designed to ensure that all students feel safe, happy and secure. The college structure enables students to immediately feel part of a small community within the wider school, and also allows our staff to deliver personal and individual support whilst building strong relationships with our parents and carers.

We insist upon the highest possible standards and quality at all times whilst showing care, compassion and support for each individual. We aim to remain the vibrant, learning-focused organisation with which all our stakeholders – students, parents & carers, staff and governors – are genuinely proud to be associated.

Our strengths and positive ethos are best seen at first hand, and I invite you to visit Priestnall and see for yourself our collective and daily pursuit of excellence.

I look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely,

Mr C Burns
