Foundation News: Crescent School Consults Public Over Additional Year 4 Or 5 Places For September

The Crescent School on Bawnmore Road, Bilton is undertaking a public consultation to gauge interest in additional places in Year 4 or 5 at the school for next academic year.

Both Year 4 and Year 5 will be full in September and capped at 24 pupils. Dependent on interest the school is looking at possibly adding a further Year 4 or 5 class, resulting in two classes of between 16-18 pupils.

The independent school for boys and girls aged four to eleven is asking prospective parents and pupils to register their interest by Friday 24 March, so their views can be taken into consideration when the school makes a decision.

Comments Headmaster, Huw Marshall, “Interest in the Crescent is at an all-time high. For a number of years we have considered the possibility of increasing a year group to two forms at the top of the school, where traditionally classes have been full. If interest were sufficient our aim would be to split one of those year groups into two classes of around 16-18 children, with the capacity to grow over time.”

He continues, “This is an exciting opportunity which would enable more children to benefit from a Crescent education, smaller class sizes and the school’s success in getting children into their first choice of secondary school, including the local grammars.”

Those interested should contact Mr Marshall at the Crescent or come along to the school’s Open Morning on Saturday 25 March from 9.30am to 12.00pm to find out more. The Open Morning will include a performance by Nursery to Year 2 children of a delightful musical, There’s a sunflower in my supper, and will also provide parents with an opportunity to meet Joe Thackway who is taking over from Mr Marshall as Headmaster in September.
