Foundation News: Crescent School Moves To Two Year 4 Classes For September 2017
Following a recent public consultation, the Crescent School on Bawnmore Road, Bilton has confirmed its decision to increase to two Year 4 classes from September 2017. The two classes of initially between 16-18 pupils will move up through the school over the next three years.
Traditionally the school has been one form entry with classes capped at 24 pupils, however with interest at an all-time high, the independent school for boys and girls aged four to eleven, asked current and prospective parents for feedback and to register interest in either Year 4 or 5 earlier in the year.
Comments Headmaster, Huw Marshall, “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. The consultation showed definitively that interest was strongest for September’s Year 4 and we know we can accommodate and look after the additional children. The move is good news for both our current pupils and the new pupils who will be joining us, they will benefit from the smaller class sizes and the school’s proven success in getting children into their first choice of secondary school, including the local grammars.”
There is still time to register interest in Year 4 for September and lower years, as the school will be holding its last open event on Wednesday 10 May from 5.00pm to 7.30pm. The Open Evening will provide parents and children with an opportunity look around the school and to meet Joe Thackway who is taking over from Mr Marshall as Headmaster from September 2017.
