Sponsored Cheltenham Half Marathon

Dear Old Cryptians and friends,
I am very pleased to inform you of the programme for this unique day in the School’s calendar.
One of Gloucestershire’s most popular secondary schools has launched plans to open a new, feeder primary school.
The Crypt School in Gloucester has announced plans to create a primary school, linked to the secondary school, in Podsmead.
The new primary school would, unlike The Crypt School, which is a co-educational grammar, be unselective and would be a free school.
Nicholas Dyer, headteacher of The Crypt School, told BBC Radio Gloucestershire: “It will be a primary that recruits from our immediate area of Podsmead.

Aiden Horsley has been dubbed a ‘medical miracle’ after breaking his neck and leaving doctors fearing he would be be paralysed for life.
But the ‘inspirational’ boy made a remarkable recovery, with him walking just four days after the accident.
The gymnast, who attends the Crypt School and trains at Checkers Gym in Morelands Trading Estate, specialised in tumbling which combines gymnastics with the skill of trampolining.
The video game industry is booming, as our culture become more digitalised gaming has simply become more accepted. We live in a day and age where elderly people on buses are playing games on their phones while they ride the bus.
That’s where Digital Schoolhouse from UKIE come in. They regularly hold workshops and tournaments to educate schoolchildren on the potential jobs that exist within the gaming sphere. Every year, they host a gaming tournament for schools across the nation – the finals culminated at the Gfinity Arena earlier this week.
Out of all the teams that competed, it was the group ‘Cryptonite’ from the Crypt School in Gloucester that came out on top in the Overwatch tournament.
The team of 14 and 15 year-olds couldn’t believe their luck, taking home a trophy, medals, a PlayStation 4, a signed Overwatch poster in a frame and a limited edition Soldier 76 statue between them.
The win came as a big shock to them according to one of the winners, Beau Maguire: ‘It was very nerve-wracking and surprising because we didn’t expect to win at all. We didn’t expect to win regionals and we definitely didn’t expect to win the whole thing. We somehow didn’t even drop a map.’
