About our School

Kings Priory School is in its fourth year as an academy, providing high quality education to over 1300 pupils aged 4 to 19.

The result of a merger between a thriving independent school and an outstanding community primary school, we are an inclusive, non-fee paying academy with excellent teachers, a family environment, motivated pupils and a commitment to educating the whole child - both in and outside of the classroom.

The School operates across neighbouring sites in the centre of the attractive coastal village of Tynemouth with short commuting links into Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The school is close to the ancient Priory, the mouth of the River Tyne and the beach. This historical and picturesque setting provides a stimulating learning opportunity for all of our pupils. 

Kings Priory School is part of Woodard Academies Trust multi-academy sponsor whose aim is to be a provider of world class education, transforming lives within and across communities. Our Church of England faith designation helps to make our school a thoughtful community and we are welcoming, positive and open to students and staff of all faiths and none.

Our distinctive First, Middle and Senior schools work closely together to maximise the benefits of being all through.  Our unique curriculum includes a vibrant outdoor learning specialism and encourages every pupil to be a musician. 

Our relentless focus on high academic achievement is balanced with a unique enrichment programme that embraces our specialisms in outdoor learning, sporting achievement and music. 

We nurture individual talent and inspire our pupils to work hard and respect others as they prepare to lead a full and successful life.
