Welcome Day

Welcome Day dates will be confirmed nearer the time and everyone who attends an Open Event or expresses an interest in studying at Priestley will be notified of when they take place.

Choices Day

There is one final opportunity to discuss your choices at the end of August once GCSE results have been published. This is on Tuesday 27 August between 1pm and 3pm.


You will make your final decisions about the subjects you will take at registration. This takes place from Wednesday 28 August through to Friday 30 August.

Term starts

Your first day will be Monday 9 September starting at 8.45am. It may seem a long way off now, but there is a lot to crowd in between now and then. In the meantime you can stay in touch with us via the website and social media.
