Welcome to Priory Fields School, part of The Whinless Down Academy Trust.
Our school is set in the historic town of Dover, Kent, overlooking the beautiful Whinless Down, from which our academy, the Whinless Down Academy Trust, takes its name. We are housed in a new school building, with extensive outside space, making our school a wonderful place to learn.
This website showcases much of the exciting learning which takes place at our school - which you can sample by visiting our class pages. It also provides all the essential information you will need as a parent or friend of our school.
Our school is a happy and vibrant place where everyone is treated with kindness and respect. We want each and every one of our pupils to aspire to greatness and know, that through an exciting and engaging curriculum, our pupils will be inspired to achieve their full potential. We offer learning which is fun and enriching; with skilled staff guiding our pupils’ individual learning journeys every step of the way. We are mindful of every child’s unique set of needs and offer excellent pastoral support, mentoring and bespoke support to help children overcome barriers; with children’s happiness being at the heart of all we do. We encourage children to take responsibility for their actions and choices in both school and in life.
Here at Priory Fields we are extremely proud of our strong collaborative working - both with the other Whinless Down Academy Schools and the wider community - as well as our extensive programme of school visits. By offering a wide-ranging programme of learning beyond the classroom we foster a sense of adventure and open young minds to the many opportunities which may be open to them - both during their time at our school and in the future.
Every child is important to us; through our ethos of ‘Everyone Achieving Together’ we inspire, motivate and challenge everyone within our school community to be the very best they can be.
I hope you enjoy your visit to our website.
