The Crypt School tops The Gloucestershire Real Schools Guide 2020
The Crypt School is the best state-funded secondary school in Gloucestershire, according to a comprehensive new guide.
The Real Schools Guide 2020 takes into account 51 different data points – including not just GCSE results and Attainment 8 scores but also factors like Progress 8, pupil-teacher ratios and absence rates.
Nicholas Dyer, Headmaster at The Crypt School in Podsmead, Gloucester, said his teachers strive to instil an intrinsic desire for pupils to think for themselves. Mr Dyer said: “We have had fantastic response from local families who welcome the choice of a co-ed selective grammar school in Gloucester – now approaching our third year of going co-ed we have over 130 girls in the main school and about 90 in the sixth form”.
