The Crypt School 2020 A Level Results
Our Year 13 students, whose opportunity to sit their A Level exams in May was abruptly, if understandably cancelled due to Covid-19, should be rightly proud this morning that their tremendous work and effort, over almost two years of study, has been recognised with a very strong set of A Level results. 67% of the grades awarded were the top A*-B grades, with 90% of grades at the A*-C level. The students should be very proud of their achievements and can now look forward to progressing onto their chosen destinations to start the next phase of their lives.
Teachers and other staff at The Crypt, worked tremendously hard to help support the students over their two years of Advanced Level study, as well as through the difficult period following the closure of all schools on the 20th of March.

The committee offer their heartiest congratulations to all students, teachers and staff on behalf of all OCC members.
The Crypt School tops The Gloucestershire Real Schools Guide 2020
The Crypt School is the best state-funded secondary school in Gloucestershire, according to a comprehensive new guide.
The Real Schools Guide 2020 takes into account 51 different data points – including not just GCSE results and Attainment 8 scores but also factors like Progress 8, pupil-teacher ratios and absence rates.
Nicholas Dyer, Headmaster at The Crypt School in Podsmead, Gloucester, said his teachers strive to instil an intrinsic desire for pupils to think for themselves. Mr Dyer said: “We have had fantastic response from local families who welcome the choice of a co-ed selective grammar school in Gloucester – now approaching our third year of going co-ed we have over 130 girls in the main school and about 90 in the sixth form”.
