Priory students write and publish their second book in six months to top of the Amazon charts.

INSPIRATIONAL Priory students have topped the amazon bestseller chart for the second time in six months.

The PCSA students wrote ‘How to Survive and Thrive’ as a survival guide to high school and life in general.


Within weeks of release, the book published by the school’s own innovative Priory Press made number 5 in the Amazon best-seller charts.

Their first book ‘Christmas Stories’ shared the top 10 with Blyton and Dickens in the Christmas bestseller chart.

Head of Careers James Wilmot launched a celebration evening for the authors and their friends and family.

He said: “Our students should be very proud of themselves and it is a great achievement. Everyone has a story to tell and we want to give our students every opportunity to be a published author during their time at Priory. We have the full support of Angela Lauria & Paul Brycock – the world’s most successful author coaches – to help us along.”

Principal Jane McBride said: “Well done to all our students involved in this. We are very proud of them. We take the business of reading extremely seriously and we see books as ‘portable magic’.”

The book’s blurb says: ‘Learn how to overcome the daily obstacles of school life while developing skills in leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication’.
