Introduction

Welcome to Priory 6, the St Augustine’s Priory Sixth Form for girls.

At Priory 6, our students believe;

  • In ambition
  • In community
  • In using their voice to seek answers …. to empower others
  • In making a difference
  • They are here for a reason

“Having studied Drama, English Literature, History and Latin for my A Levels, I believe the academic subjects I chose helped contribute to my career but not as much as the support and life lessons that St Augustine’s gave me.” – Rebecca Koczan, Senior Campaign Manager in the UK Marketing team for Live Nation Entertainment
