Welcome to our school


Headteacher: Bernadette Knill


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 now co-located in our new school with Ormesby School and are looking forward to developing a close working relationship which will enhance the teaching and learning in both our schools.


Priory Woods Mission Statement

Working together at Priory Woods we aim to provide a stimulating and challenging environment which will enrich and enhance pupils' learning and life experiences.



School was inspected by OFSTED on March 5th / 6th. 2014.  The report is now available for you to read by clicking here. As you can see the inspectors were full of praise for all the pupils in school; they do work hard in lessons and look after each other at playtime!  
We are all obviously delighted to receive an outstanding judgment from OFSTED; however we will not rest on our laurels as we know that we can still improve; we will continue to work hard for the benefit of all our pupils.
