Welcome to our website, which I hope will provide you with a glimpse of our school life.
Please do come and visit so you can truly experience what is so special about St. Dominic’s Priory School.
I feel extremely proud and fortunate to be the Headteacher of this very special school. I believe pupils, staff, and families who have or have had the privilege of being associated with our school will be able to identify how the school seems to engage, enthral and captivate all those who have been fortunate enough to have played a part in its amazing heritage.
We are an outstanding independent Catholic school, educating boys and girls from the age of 3 to 16, where children of all faiths are welcome.
We are ranked as one of the top performing non-selective schools in the area, and once again this year our pupils achieved excellent GCSE grades, continuing the school’s reputation for academic success by accomplishing a notable pass rate across all subjects of 100%. This highlights the school’s strong academic tradition and reputation for giving an outstanding all-round education.
Our school creates a love of learning in a friendly and happy environment; we nurture individuality and an acceptance of others’ strengths and weaknesses, so each child is advised and guided to explore and pursue their own interests and encouraged to succeed in all that they want to achieve. This was recognised when we were awarded an ‘Excellent’, which is the top grade achievable by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) and equivalent to outstanding in Ofsted terms.
We excel in the creative and performing arts and our pupils enjoy participating in activities, including art exhibitions, music concerts, school productions and dance groups. A busy programme of sports, cultural events, speakers, visits, clubs, and activities enhance school life. There is something for everyone at St. Dominic’s.
