The Crypt School working with Gloucester Academy

The Crypt School has already been working with Gloucester Academy to undertake an audit of teaching and learning, as well as the schemes of work taught in the school.

The results of this audit will be implemented in the New Year with teachers from The Crypt teaching some of the children in maths and science.

Assistant headteacher of The Crypt, Pauline Kirkpatrick will also be seconded to Gloucester Academy for one day a week in the new year to lead on aspects of teaching, learning and assessment.

Nick Dyer, headmaster of The Crypt, added: “It is part of the culture of the G15 to support our fellow Gloucester schools, and our role as a teaching school to support best practice and the development of teaching across our area.

“School improvement is never a quick process however we are looking to raise the standards of teaching and learning over the course of the next few months and this ongoing partnership will lead to better outcomes for all of the children at Gloucester Academy.”

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 on Christmas day.

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

The Crypt School has achieved another set of impressive A Level results: 82% of grades achieved were A*-C, with an overall pass mark of 99% A*-E.

Notable individual successes include: Will Matson, 3 A* and 1 A; Austen Tulodziecki, 3 A*’s; Nathan Browne and Louis Staley, 2 A*’s and 1 A; Sam Berry, Callum Brignall, Seb Golding and Jack Greening 1 A* and 2 A’s; Harry Pearce, 2A*’s and 1 B; Henry Ip and Jacob Charles, 3 A’s; Jacob Wilson A*, A and B Jamal Farooq, 2 A’s and 2 B’s.

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.”
