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.

Our new building which will accommodate some of our Post 16 students and open as a café for the local community has just opened. Some of our Post 16 students are now having some lessons in the 2 new classrooms in the building. The catering team is getting the kitchen and café area ready for a grand opening in July (details to follow). Click here to see some photos of the new building.
