Priory Woods School & Arts College A Special Place to Learn


Head Teacher Welcome

Welcome to our brand new website, as you will see, it is still a work in progress as we continue to add information to the different areas.

We hope it will continue to be useful for pupils, families and colleagues from other schools and professions, giving you a flavour of life in our school, our wonderful children and young people and all of their hard work and achievements.

Our new site is compatible with mobile devices so you will be able to keep up to date wherever you are!

Welcome to our school

Priory Woods School and Arts College is an all age community special school situated in east Middlesbrough. Our school provides a quality, inclusive education for pupils with severe learning difficulties and those with profound and multiple needs.

We are co-located with Outwood Academy Ormesby on a modern purpose built site.

Priory Woods Vision

By working together, our pupils will enjoy a creative, innovative, exciting and challenging curriculum within a safe environment which will enrich and enhance every child’s learning. 

We aim to achieve our vision by

  • Creating an ethos where everyone values and respects themselves and each other
  • Creating an inclusive environment which fosters a sense of belonging
  • Enabling our young people to fulfil their potential through high expectations, aspirations and learning opportunities which meet their individual learning needs
  • The promotion of pupil voice where opinions are valued, encouraged and which can influence change.
