Lewes Priory school

I attended this school between the years 1975 to 1977, one year in the middle school, and one year in the upper school I thought the teaching was rubbish, particularly if you were only of average ability, like myself. I can remember, even at the time, the school had an overblown reputation. What I think was happening was that the school was spoilt by it's very midddle class intake, who could in reality teach themselves, as long as you gave them the materials. I remember being mistankly put in the top stream for maths, as they did not have my reports from my previous school and I can remember to this day the teacher throughout the lessons I had ( before I was rapidly demoted) reading the paper at his desk at the front, while the pupils just worked from the text book. These schools had a name attached to them many years later called, "coasters", and that summed up Lewes priory for me and why I only left with three CSE's. Thought across the road, there was a far better institution called, Lewes Technical College, who took a lot of the Priory rejects post sixteen, I recevied a much better education here, and duly got my O-Levels and eventually went to university.

I was at Priory until 1975. My 2 kids have recently left the same school. All 3 of us think Priory is a pretty good school.

I went to Priory and I'm unemployable.

My sister went to Priory and is a top genetic scientist.

My cousin didn't got to Priory and is the President of Peru

Chailey school has a big sign outside it saying it got Outstanding for its Ofsted report.

This thread is truly silly.

I thought it was a weird school. Lots of pseuds. It took me years to achieve anything. I am now an abject failure, but, at least I'm not a pretentious tyre kicker.
