Welcome to Priestley School

Welcome to the Priestley Experience

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and welcome you to Priestley Primary School.  I am Andrew Marsh-Ballard and have been Headteacher here at Priestley since September 2005.

Whether your child is starting school, or has transferred from elsewhere, they will be a member of the school at an exciting time in its history.  It is a time of change and exploration with the intention of maximising your child’s potential at Priestley.

This website will convey to you the ethos, aims, organisation and values of the school.  However, seeing is believing, so you are warmly invited to come in and meet me and tour the school.  This will allow you to experience the friendly, creative and stimulating atmosphere we generate.

In the constant strive to raise standards we feel that it is important not to lose sight of the child as an individual.  We at Priestley value the contribution you make at home and are constantly looking to maximise this relationship and look  forward to being able to work in partnership with yourselves in the all round development of your child.

Should you wish to arrange a visit or have any other questions please feel free to contact the school.
