On Tuesday 21 November Crescent School held a dedicated Reception Open Evening. It was an opportunity for families to visit the school, listen to a presentation, view children’s work and talk to members of the Reception and Early Years Team.

The evening was very successful and the school was delighted to welcome some 17 families to get a feel for what makes Crescent so special.

Headmaster, Joe Thackway, commented “There has been a lot of interest in the school and a good number of early registrations for Reception 2018 places, in fact it looks like all our Reception places will be snapped up by early in the New Year and we might need to have a waiting group. This is a real testament to the reputation of the school and recommendations from current parents.”

Parents are reminded that the deadline for Early Bird applications for places in the Reception class next year is Monday 27 November 2017. Offers to Early Bird applicants will be posted first class on Wednesday 6 December, with an acceptance deadline of Monday 8 January.

For those who missed this week’s Open Evening there is one further opportunity to visit the school before the final deadline for Reception applications closes as the school will be holding an Open Day on Friday 19 January from 10.00am to 3.00pm.
