The Priestlands Heritage and Young Peoples Project:
In 2001 Priestlands School, Pennington Infants School, and Pennington Junior School received an award from the Heritage Lottery Fund to set up a joint project. It has given us a unique opportunity to bring together pupils from the three schools and across all the key stages around a heritage theme.

The project is part of a national pilot, which in time will become a model for other schools to follow. The focus of the project is to explore how the curriculum can be used as a vehicle to access a site rich in historical and environmental heritage. The main heritage asset is the Grade II listed, early 19th century mansion house, coach house, walled gardens, lakes, woodlands and designed landscape. The mansion house has been used for education since 1957 and has seen a subsequent development of the three main schools around it. The aims are based on the realisation that there are many opportunities in the curriculum to promote our local heritage. The project will undoubtedly reinforce our studentsí awareness and understanding of their local area and its distinctive identity. We have also tried to actively encourage their enjoyment and involvement in the conservation of their local environment.
