As part of their Raising Aspirations lessons, Priory pupils have been fundraising in all sorts of ways - ranging from busking and sponsored runs to staff sports events and selling food and drinks.
Ms Emler, who oversaw the whole project, says this year's total has been the most raised by pupils over the last three £1 challenges.
Mr Edwards, Priory's headteacher said: 'Raising Aspirations is an integral part of what The Priory School offers its students, and opportunities such as the £1 challenge allows the students to show their entrepreneurial spirit and give back to our local community.
'We are very proud that our students have been able to donate such a large amount to two local charities that are linked very closely to the school.'
