New Vaccination for Year 11 Students

NHS England South (Wessex) has asked us to raise awareness of an important vaccination programme that has been introduced into the national immunisation schedule. The MenACWY vaccine is now being offered to all students in Year 11 to provide protection against Meningitis W and to reduce the spread of the disease to others.

The current Year 11 cohort will not be invited to receive it, but will need to book in with their GP. Please contact your GP from January 2016 to make an appointment.  A leaflet providing information is available here or contact your GP practice if you have any further queries.

If you would like further information regarding what other vaccinations you should receive please visit NHS Choices.

Why HE? Portsmouth University Trip

Following our successful trip in November, a second day at the University was organised. Yet again it was oversubscribed, so we will be running another after Easter! The day involved pupils discovering what University life is like – from accommodation to finance/budgeting to independent study!

The pupils represented the school perfectly, asking lots of questions and engaging well with the ambassadors and the activities they were given to do. The tour of the campus was slightly different this time round, with the pupils being able to view the TV station filming areas and also the mock court room.

They all thoroughly enjoyed it and found it extremely useful. Well done Year 9!

Year 10 Football Success!

Milton Cross – 5-1 WIN

The Year 10’s have had a good season and continued their current form with a 5-1 victory over close neighbours Milton Cross. A brace from both Johnson and James with a neat finish from Wade ensured the boys were rewarded with the goals that their superiority deserved. A special mention to Dudman who produced a great double save just before half time to keep Milton Cross at a two goal distance to ensure they were always at an arm’s length throughout the game.

King Richard – 2-0 WIN

The Year 10’s are now in the semi final of the Portsmouth Cup against Admiral Lord Nelson. King Richard’s were unfortunately unable to field a side meaning that Priory were awarded a walkover into the next round. Priory will be looking to avenge the earlier defeat in the season to Admiral where the boys played with only 10 men but only narrowly lost out on a share of the spoils.

Good luck boys!

Priory help at KS1 Dance Festival

21 dance leaders from years 8/9 took in a KS1 Dance Festival. The theme was Rio and girls led groups of 20 children which culminated in a Dance show at the end of 90 minutes. For some of the girls it was their first time leading and working with younger pupils -to work with 190 could have been quite daunting! The girls led with maturity and professionalism and many teachers commented on their positive relationships with their pupils.

Well done girls!
