OCC Dinner 2019 – 23rd March
On behalf of your President and the Committee of the Old Cryptians’ Club, I am pleased to invite you to the Old Cryptians’ Club AGM and Annual Reunion Dinner.
This year, the event will be held at the Church of St Mary de Crypt and the Old Crypt Schoolrooms, Southgate Street, Gloucester, GL1 1PT.
The venue has been undergoing major renovation with the assistance of the Heritage Lottery Fund and our event will be the first function to be held there, following the completion of the project.
If there is sufficient interest, we can get a small (10%) discount on the cost of a ticket to Gloucester v Wasps kicking off at 15:00 which will leave enough time for a gentle stroll through the city to the old School Rooms.
Please indicate your interest in the rugby and ground preference below.
Call for interest – Old Cryptians Club Blazer
We have had some interest in the OCC Blazer – as nattily modelled by young Briggs – but not yet enough to push the order button.
If you have been deliberating a purchase, now is the time to press the pre-order button to receive your blazer in time for wearing at the annual dinner (maybe).
A versatile article of clothing that will be a super addition to any Old Cryptian’s wardrobe, this blazer shouldn’t be reserved for OCC events; it will be equally at home on the banks of the Thames at Henley, the Garden Stage at the End of The Road festival or deep in the Shed at Kingsholm.
Crypt School in the top 5% of schools nationally for progress
The Crypt School’s summer GCSE results have placed the School in the top 5% of schools nationally for progress.
The School’s Progress 8 score, that is the progress pupils make between KS2 (Year 6) and KS4 (Year 11) for 2018 is 0.65. That means that the School has added more than half a grade to each pupil’s expected progress by the end of their GCSE studies in Year 11. This is a wonderful endorsement of all the tremendous work carried out at The Crypt by both our committed staff and talented pupils.
A History of the Crypt School
Impressive A Level results

Nicholas Dyer, Headmaster, commented: “I am very pleased with the success of our Year 13 cohort, in a year when nearly all our students were studying the newly reformed A Levels.
Their success is the product of both the hard work of the students and the dedicated support of their teachers. I am also delighted with the impressive set of university destinations that our students are heading to in the autumn and equally pleased to see a very good number of students who have now secured leading apprenticeships with local and national companies that combine work with studying for a degree.
These good A Level results send out a very strong signal to those students in Year 11 who are thinking of coming to The Crypt to study for their A Levels: you too can achieve highly in our outstanding sixth form.”
