Recognising progress

At the end of every academic year, Priory College Swindon holds a Leavers’ Ceremony for students, parents and other key individuals such as mainstream college tutors. Students are presented with certificates of achievement, as well as certificates of qualification and staff make a short speech about each student, detailing their ‘college journey’, key achievements and personal qualities.
