Part of Woodard Academies Trust

Kings Priory School is in its fourth year as an academy, providing high quality education to over 1300 pupils aged 4 to 18.

The result of a merger between a thriving independent school and an outstanding community primary school, we are an inclusive, non-fee paying academy with excellent teachers, a family environment, motivated pupils and a commitment to educating the whole child - both in and outside of the classroom.

The School operates across neighbouring sites in the centre of the attractive coastal village of Tynemouth with short commuting links into Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The school is close to the ancient Priory, the mouth of the River Tyne and the beach. This historical and picturesque setting provides a stimulating learning opportunity for all of our pupils. 

Kings Priory School recently placed as joint-top performing state school in the region for its GCSE performance in 2016. This comes after The Chronicle named us as having the joint best GCSE results in the North East last year, with  91% of pupils achieving at least 5 A*-C GCSEs including Maths and English. Amongst other top headlines 96% of pupils received an A*-C in Mathematics and in English.

Kings Priory School is part of Woodard Academies Trust multi-academy sponsor whose aim is to be a provider of world class education, transforming lives within and across communities. Our Church of England faith  helps to make our school a thoughtful community and we are welcoming, positive and open to students and staff of all faiths and none.
