At Penwortham Priory Academy we pride ourselves on a strong and successful transition programme. This allows our new students a smooth and enjoyable transition from primary school to Priory.

Our programme of transition is wide ranging and spans the full academic year. We work very closely with our feeder primary schools throughout the year as well as a number of opportunities for Years 4, 5 and 6 students to visit Priory.

A number of our staff work in the primary schools on exciting projects including ICT, Maths, Science, Physical Education and Design & Technology. 

Mrs Farley, Transition Manager, can be contacted via email at

Summer School 

This exciting opportunity is open to all incoming Year 7 pupils.  We hope that as many pupils as possible attend – even if just for one of the days (although they are welcome to join us for all three).
