The offering is available during term time only, and children are required to attend a minimum of four-morning sessions per week (Sessions run from 9am to 1pm and 9am to 3.30pm).

We follow the Early Years’ Foundation Stage Curriculum, which covers three prime areas; communication, language and physical development alongside personal, social and emotional growth. These early years are critical as children develop rapidly during this time – physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially.

The Individual attention, small class sizes, excellent resources, and happy environment are enriched with activities including dance, music, sport which is taught by specialist staff from our prep and senior school

Our catering company prepare and serve nutritious meals for the children, which are available according to the children’s sessions. Individual dietary requirements can be catered for. IMG 9890

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.
