School head Mrs Pat Adamson


St Dominic’s Priory School is an Independent Day School and Nursery educating girls from 3 months to 18 years and boys to 11 years. We offer academic success in a caring and creative environment. Our beautiful Georgian boarding house is designed to a very high standard, and is a ‘home from home’ for 17 girls.

As parents you want to choose the right school for your children, so come and see what we can offer. Prospective pupils are invited to join in classroom sessions, tour the school and meet with current pupils and staff.

We are proud of our long-standing reputation for high academic achievement, exemplary behaviour and creativity in the curriculum. We value individuals and our smaller class sizes create an environment in which potential can be fully realised because each child is known, cared for and encouraged to be the best that they can be.

We are placed Top School in Staffordshire for our A Level results and listed as 6th nationally in the Daily Telegraph’s listing of small schools. For ten years all girls have successfully gained entry to their chosen universities, having been given the best possible start in life. We were also very proud of our GCSE results; our pupils achieved 100% pass rate with 83% achieving A* – C including English and Maths (MIDYAS predictive data for this group at entry predicted 62%, so considerable value added).
Situated in the picturesque canal town of Stone, Staffordshire, we are within easy reach of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stoke-On-Trent, Stafford, Uttoxeter, Cheadle and the surrounding villages. We offer school transport from a variety of locations and Stone Station is a 5 minute walk from school.

We have an exciting range of extracurricular and sporting activities, and offer scholarships and bursaries (assistance with fees) because every child should have the chance to join us here at St. Dominic’s.

Are you looking for a school that offers your child a wide range of experiences so that they can best decide what excites and motivates them?
