I can't help but pick up on all the positivity surrounding this school at the moment. 'Outstanding' Ofsted, investment in facilities and infrastructure (and more on the way!) and the general sense that this is a school very much on the 'Up'. I think the number of new students from Cheltenham and surrounding areas, suggests that word is getting out there about just how good this school is. This is all great for new and existing students, but wonder how its success could inpact upon those kids now trying for a place in the Gloucester areas???

I must admit to trying to sell Crypt to my son who seems convinced he wants to go to Tommies. ( we do live in Gloucester and DD is going to Ribston in Sept)

mmm I have to agree, "Tales from the Crypt" type spine chillers always came to mind when I first heard of the school!
However, that said I liked it when we looked round and I am glad they are doing so well. DC17C Crypt would be handier for your Ribston travel arrangements wouldn't it?

Positivity re The Crypt has increased more over the last year or two than re any other Glos grammar school.

..if we had been staying in this country without a doubt I would have chosen to send my younger DSs to Crypt not STRS.

Just thought I would add to this thread rather start a new one -that Mr Standen sent out a letter to parents today stating that the Crypt School had been assessed at "Exceptional" in a day long inspection of Competetive Sports provision. This is apparently above " Outstanding" i have never heard of this grading before is it new?

DS is unlikely to be a competive sportsman but the school does seem to be suiting him so far and he is enjoying rugby as well as most of the other subjects and aspects of the school.

Realise my last post was a tad blunt and could be read by future members. Recent changes at STRS would once again allow me to consider the school should the need arise. :D
