The Telford Priory School in Wrockwardine Wood is celebrating a wealth of achievements during the last academic year, from sporting wins to raising funds for local charities.
Dozens of local primary school children hunted for hidden letters around the school, the letters had to be rearranged to spell the word Superhero – which relates to the school’s passion for helping youngsters become everyday heroes.
Headteacher Stacey Jordan said: “Anyone can be a hero’ is a motto used to remind the students that they can be anything they want to be, and that a rangeof opportunities are available to them.
We are keen to bring members of our community in to showcase our fabulous school and be part of these experiences with us.”
Staff and students from TPS’s Team7 were on hand to provide tours and answer questions about the school’s facilities, which include a recording studio, 3G pitch, iMac suite and professional 300-seat theatre.
Team7 is the transition team that welcome new Year 7s into the school; their events include welcome evenings, summer school, discos and trips.
Helen Cooper,aparent at Muxton Primary, said: “My advice to other parents who are considering their children’s secondary education, is go to the school and meet the children and staff. I’m so glad we came!”
Photos of the day can be seen on the school’s Facebook and Twitter pages, along with details of upcoming events including the TPS open evening on October 2.
The Y8 boys’ football team are proud guardians of the Shropshire President’s Shield after beating Bridgnorth Endowed School in the cup final.
Another achievement was Priory Robotix, the school’s STEM club, competing in the Lego Robot Challenge at RAF Cosford, where they won the ‘Best Teamwork’ Category.
The school is also revelling in the success of its annual stage production ‘Back to the 80’s’ where students of all ages performed to the public; over 1,000 fans turned out to see the full scale theatre production with full sound and lighting rig involving 80 students and 12 member of staff.
Students at the school, all members of one of four house teams, have raised over £4,400 this year for their chosen charities, through activities such as cakes sales, discos, sponsored tasks and school fetes.
They have also enjoyed a variety of school trips, as well as visits from inspirational speakers and business organisations.
The Telford Priory School has a business partnership with global organisation Epson which means that students have access to expert business and technical advice as well as work experience and apprenticeships.
TPS is a community school and works hard engaging local primary schools in sports days, swimming lessons, teacher training, concerts and productions, and Maths and Science events.
Rocket Readers is a fruitful program where boys in year 9 buddy up with a boy in year 5 to encourage reading enjoyment.
