The Crescent School is now formally part of the Princethorpe Foundation family as of Thursday 1 September.
Teachers and support staff from the Crescent, joined Princethorpe, Crackley Hall and Little Crackers Nursery staff for a whole Foundation INSET Mass, information session and lunch to celebrate.
Ed Hester, welcomed Crescent Headmaster Huw Marshall and Rob Duigan Crackley Headmaster and their respective teams and reiterated the close fit between the ethos of all the schools within the Foundation and the exciting opportunities for sharing best practice for the benefit of both staff and the pupils.
Over the summer work has been going on behind the scenes to finalise the merger and cement working relationships including that with award-winning Nature Trails Nursery which is located on the Crescent site. There has also been considerable work over the summer on upgrading four classrooms and replacing all the computers in the IT Suite, as well as general maintenance to the buildings.
As a result of the merger sibling discounts now extend to Crescent School too, with discounts on the main tuition fee automatically applied to siblings (5% for second and third sibling, 10% for fourth and subsequent siblings) and apply whilst there are two or more children attending schools in the Foundation.*
* including Princethorpe College, Crescent School and Crackley Hall, but excluding children attending Little Crackers Nursery unless the application for the place in nursery was received prior to 1 September 2015. Nature Trails Nursery is not included in the sibling discount.
