While our son was at The Priory, the school did a great job of encouraging the students to be involved in different initiatives such as fundraising for charitable causes by holding bake sales, craft sales, etc. or joining the Student Council which helped impoverished families at Christmas by collecting for food baskets, etc. After-school activities, at the time, were handled by an external organization that would come into the school and provide instruction. My understanding was that the students enjoyed their activities. The chess program at the school is also impressively handled and all students at all levels of chess-playing are welcome. What is beautiful at The Priory is that if a parent, student or teacher has an idea to introduce an activity, initiative or outing, it is rare that the idea will not be thoroughly assessed and then implemented. The school's administration is most open to all kinds of creative ideas that will help the students, i.e. etiquette lessons, cooking lessons, a drama club with annual plays, history project competitions, "Shark Tank"-like competitions - there is something for every student.
The extra curricular activities are fantastic!
