In March, some of our students entered the National Intermediate Mathematical Challenge.

The aim of the challenge is to stimulate mathematical problem-solving.

Well done to all of the students who took part, we are very proud to announce that four St Dominic’s students have achieved a certificate.

This is a huge achievement as these students are the highest performers in the Challenge; the top-scoring 40% of participants are awarded bronze, silver and gold certificates in the ratio 3:2:1.

Some of our Pr 3 and Pr 4 boys and girls took part in a Rugby Mega Fest at Eccleshall Rugby Club last week. The Kids First Mega Fest format is promoted by the English Rugby Football Union.

The event was run by the Stafford & Stone Sports Partnership, supported by the coaches at Eccleshall Rugby Club and the partnership young leaders.

There were many different games and challenges to participate in, including rugby rounders, rob the nest, ball touch, statues, end ball and breakout tag.

Today was our last shared lunch of the Lenten season. Throughout this time students have given generously and eaten simply as a way of both standing in solidarity with the poor of the world and focusing on their own spiritual welfare as opposed to their own physical needs.

Well done everyone; as usual, carried out in true Dominican spirit!

We have raised enough money to buy fishing nets, chickens and even a goat for our brothers and sisters in developing countries overseas.


On Thursday, Year 10 students visited the Manchester Jewish Museum.

There, they consolidated their knowledge and understanding of Jewish faith and practice through a series of games, activities and even a round of Family Fortunes!

Students also learnt some new and fascinating facts about the life of the Haredi Jews that live in the nearby Leicester Road. They travelled there afterwards and, having walked up and down the High Street, called into Brackman’s Bakery to sample some kosher fayre.


Primary 4 had a real treat this morning when Mrs Harrison came to make Easter themed chocolate crispy cakes with them! They had a great time and enjoyed spending time with the headteacher.

School Update

St. Dominic’s Priory School is currently open for all children in Pre-school, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 in addition to children of key workers across all years.

For those children who remain at home, the full curriculum is being taught daily by teachers via Microsoft Teams. Children can communicate with teachers and friends during lesson time and can download and submit their work online helping them to continue to be motivated and remain focused.

We have been conducting virtual tours, meetings and online lesson experiences for parents and children considering St. Dominic’s Priory School for their children and have places available across a number of year groups for September 2020.

We have received an unprecedented number of admissions in Year 9 for September 2020 and as a result have added an additional form class to accommodate. As a result we now have places available for Year 9 from September 2020.
