Please join us at 7.00pm tonight on the school’s youtube channel for our virtual Senior Concert.
Here is the link: https://youtu.be/cdrvLJga8k8
It features some amazing performances from students from Y10-13, mostly recorded under lockdown!
You will be impressed by their enthusiasm, musical skill and determination.
I gave the students the challenge to learn a new piece for this concert and some of them have certainly taken themselves out of their comfort zones!
If you are unable to join us, the concert will remain on our youtube channel for you to enjoy when you are able.
From the ins and outs of remote teaching to some fun extracurricular activities, this SoGlos finds out more about the realities of online learning from two students at The Crypt School Click To Tweet in Gloucester.
As Year 7s, Theo and Marianne (pictured left) are in their first year at The Crypt School, a leading co-educational secondary school in Gloucester. Like many students across the county, they have been logging into online school and learning remotely during lockdown.
The School are delighted to announce the Department for Education’s approval of a new and innovative free school for the children in Gloucester.
The Wheatridge Primary School aims to work closely with the community providing local children access to a world class, academically focused education to prepare them for the demands of a secondary school curriculum and help them aspire to achieve highly in all that they do.
There is more detail on the School’s website about this important and exciting announcement.
Dear Old Cryptians,
It has been a quite extraordinary year for us all, but I do hope that this note from your old school finds you all safe and well. The Crypt has endured through the ups and downs of the last 9 months, as it always has, and I think risen tremendously well to the challenges we have all faced. The students take great heart from knowing that the School has endured many, and indeed more demanding challenges in its long and distinguished history, which gives them the resolve needed to cope with the challenges of the present.
I have been immensely proud to be the Headmaster of the School over this period, as it has been a real privilege to lead and work with such a wonderfully committed group of staff and a fine set of young people.
I wish you all a safe and happy Christmas and we hope for better days ahead.
My very best wishes,
This edition is available for download as well as the online presentation but we felt that the logistical and administration burden of sending physical copies to members was too much given the huge additional workload that school office is under during this pandemic period.
We hope you enjoy reading as much as we have enjoyed collating and creating.
We welcome your thoughts about the magazine content and are already collecting articles for next years, hopefully Covid-free edition – please comment here or by email to the President.
This will be available from 19:30 on Wednesday October 21st on YouTube.
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.
NC Dyer – Headmaster
The committee offer their heartiest congratulations to all students, teachers and staff on behalf of all OCC members.
