The Lost Cryptians
Old Cryptians killed during the Great War and Second World War by Simon Birch, Sarah Birch and Ray Pocock.
No less than 58 Old Cryptians in the 1914-18 and 80 in the 1939-45 conflicts, made the supreme sacrifice for King and Country. This 300 page book seeks to record their all too brief lives and what they achieved. It is a poignant story but one that deserves our respect and admiration, and a recognition that their sacrifice was not in vain.
The ‘Book Launch’ took place place at The Crypt School on Friday 17 March 2006. The book is priced at £9.99 each plus £1.99 p & p each [UK only, overseas on application]. Books can be collected in person to avoid postage costs. Cheques payable to ‘The Old Cryptians Club’ to Howard Allen, Penlan, Cheltenham Road, Pitchcombe, Stroud, GL6 6LZ. Tel : 01452 812638.
A kindle edition is available from Amazon.
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.
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.”
