About the school
“ The school provides a caring environment … all pupils are valued and well known by their teachers.” – OFSTED
St Crispin’s is a successful, mixed 11-18 comprehensive school. It offers a full range of opportunities for personal development within a formal setting. We seek to promote the best aspects of traditional education with an emphasis on learning, hard work, good behaviour, respect for oneself and for others. To this is added a curriculum that develops the knowledge, skills and understanding required by students who are living in an increasingly complex technological society. Moreover, as a specialist school in Mathematics and Computing, students are able to develop and apply these areas of learning in all parts of the curriculum.
Not only do we stress the importance of acquiring qualifications, but also the development of personal qualities. Students may explore a wide range of moral, social, spiritual and ethical issues through the Personal and Social Education programme, visiting speakers, school assemblies and School Council – and form a set of values with which they can judge the actions of themselves and of others.
