Hi all
Just got back from Crypt. Never been there before and I was not too sure what to make of it all!The boys all seemed very down to earth and helpful. The head was informative and making it his mission to ensure we all knew Crypt was equal to any of the other grammars in the county.

DS1 enjoyed the languages and history department and DS2 the labs. Staff seemed friendly and helpful.

What did you think??

I will wait to see what others visiting tonight thought-as a Crypt parent whose son absolutely hated the school on first sight it is always interesting to see if visitors can get past the "horrible building" view!!!
if you need any info please ask away!

The original school was part of St Mary de Crypt church in Southgate Street according to wikipedia.

Interesting you mention the building. I have just been to Tommies and it looked dirty from the outside. Inside it was rather untidy, lockers bashed in, bags and coats on top of lockers etc. but I guess we were seeing nit 'at work' and not Ofsted prep'd. That said I can see past the buildings and to the kids/teachers there.

I can imagine unappealing settings would be extremely off putting to those who had no idea what to expect. Pates kind of steals the limelight on this aspect of the school, very clean, ordered and new.

However, it's not all about the 'look' of the place but the 'life' within it

:0)
