PEDAL-POWERED smoothies are on the menu after Priory Community School, an Academy Trust, became the first school in North Somerset to benefit from initiatives to promote healthy and sustainable travel.
The Active Travel to School project was launched with students trying out a unique pedal-powered smoothie maker bike which showed how to convert energy through pedal power into a healthy breakfast option.
Priory Community School has unveiled new expansion plans which it hopes will allow it to accommodate a further 300 pupils.
PCSA has increased its admission numbers by 16 students this year and aims to keep that number rising to satisfy a growing demand for places.
The school’s architects have now unveiled sketches and layouts for a new block to increase its numbers by 300.
The academy’s scheme will see a new futuristic science block with 10 classrooms built in the shape of a block of DNA.
Principal Neville Coles said: “We are very proud of our students and want to see every single one of them get the best platform for their future success, so we also want the very best buildings and facilities we can have.
Priory Community School has now officially opened the doors of its £1.4million Sir Richard Branson Centre.
Weston’s MP John Penrose attended the ceremony at Priory Community School and staff looked on as 15-year-old pupil Lloyd Bunyan cut the ribbon.
The centre is a support-to-learn hub which will help thousands of children overcome a range of issues to achieve success.
