People passing by The Crypt School will have noticed a new and imposing structure on the site (see photo). Construction of the new four badminston court Sports Hall started in November (2001) and is due to be completed, on schedule, in March. The much-needed facility reflects the growth in the school’s popularity and demand for places. The School is grateful to the Local Education Authority for largely funding the project and to the Gloucester United Schools Trust who also contributed. £15,000 was raised by parents of the school through the Crypt School Association.
