We wanted to extend our thanks to all our alumni who have supported our students over the year.  

Fred Pye

Computer Science - Fred delivered a presentation to Year 10 and 11 imedia students.  The presentation covered multimedia areas such as preparing online content in terms of graphics, audio, video, working with or on different platforms and legal implications.  Fred also gave students an insight into 16 possible career opportunities relating to multimedia expertise.  

Drama - Fred was very involved with drama when attending The Priory School.  He very kindly agreed to conduct a question and answer session with students about his career path since leaving school, with a particular focus on how Drama helped him succeed.  The session was recorded and a video produced which was shown during the school's Year 9 options evening.

English at Work and Careers Event - our sincere thanks go to Fred for producing a video for year 9 students for this event.  The video covered showing students how important it is to have good listening, speaking, reading and writing skills when they leave school to help them with future employment and education.  Fred also covered career opportunities available in his field of work.

James McKie 

Geography - James delivered a virtual presentation to Year 9 Geography students about what is involved in moving to Sweden and his career path.  The students really enjoyed the session and fed back comments such as:

  • Really interesting, I’d like to go and visit Sweden now.
  • Love the sound of going there, but I would also miss fish and chips 
  • Enjoyed the talk and the questions, would love to do more of this in lessons for people in different countries.

Adam Shantry

PE - Adam will be talking virtually to our GCSE PE students about his sporting career pathway since leaving The Priory School.  Adam is a Cricket professional and is currently Headcoach at Shrewsbury School.  He played professionally for Northamptonshire CCC, Warwickshire CCC and Glamorgan CCC.  He also played overseas in Australia, South Africa, and the West Indies. 

Our thanks also to Josh Stell, Alice James and Will Coles for offering to talk to students in the future.

We are hoping things may be back to some normality in 2022 and we can invite you to more events and activities.
