OUTSTANDING is the word OFSTED used about Early Years provision at Priory School of Our Lady of Walsingham – or what we call our “Cabin School”. Housed in a purpose built block, with a fenced off and secure outside play area based on the “Forest School” model, pupils enjoy a tremendously rich programme of specialist tutors, sports, events and performance.
Their contribution to the Harvest Festival brought applause from all those in St Mildred’s Church earlier in October!
But the best thing to do is to listen to what the Ofsted inspectors said this year to get a flavour of the exceptionally high quality of education Cabin School children enjoy
Children make an excellent start to their learning in Reception. They make outstanding progress due to first-rate teaching and an inspirational curriculum
Bursaries and grants make the Cabin School far more affordable than you may think. Come and pay us a visit! You will be surprised!
We encourage all parents and students who wish to consider joining us to view our school in situ. This will give you the opportunity to tour the school and see the students busy in their classrooms. This will allow you to ask questions and find out what is being learnt in the different subjects.
Also for any potential new student we offer ‘taster days’ which are free with no obligation. This will allow your child(ren) to experience a day in the life of a ‘Priorian’ and get a taste of what it is like to be a student at our school, by taking part in all of the lessons from a typical day.

WTX is the first Urban Sports Academy on the Isle of Wight, teaching; free running, acrobatics and tricking, a combination of gymnastics and martial arts movements.
Tricking is a relatively new sport popping up in all our favourite superhero films. Elements of tricking can also be seen in most modern dance performances. WightTricks is for anybody wanting to learn: flips, kicks, twists, tumbling and more!
We teach our students not only how to do flips, kicks and twists, but also about how to condition their bodies and look after themselves in a fun and engaging way, providing nutritional guidance as well as setting the scene to build good lifestyle habits.
At WightTricks we like to encourage physical activity, fitness and general wellbeing in young people on the island, especially for those that have never been interested in engaging in a ‘traditional’ sport, such as football or Rugby.
We offer an exciting alternative sport, focusing on coaching others to use acrobatic manoeuvres as a physical outlet.
We have clubs in both Cowes and Ryde, and currently have over 100 active memberships. Our club offers a range of price options for different levels of interest, but with greater emphasis on group classes.
