Proud to be the only co-educational selective school in Gloucester


We are delighted to be welcoming girls into our 500 year old School in September 2018.  The School’s staff and students are working hard to ensure we provide the best education and pastoral care for our pioneering co-educational cohort in 2018.

On Friday the 16th of June 2017 year 5 boys and girls had a fantastic day at School.  They were able to experience lessons and enjoy our wonderful teaching and facilities.  The feedback from the event has been 100% positive:

“My son had an amazing day. I know it is a lot of work, so it is much appreciated. Hopefully it will spur my son on to study hard for the test.”

“My daughter loved her day at Crypt and came back bubbling with enthusiasm! Thank you for all of your efforts to keep her safe and for reassuring an anxious mother!”

“My daughter had a great day today, thank you to all involved for your hard work that made it so enjoyable.”

“Such a well organised day. My son really enjoyed it and was full of enthusiasm when I collected him.”

“I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of my son  – he really enjoyed the day (even PE, which he usually has misgivings about).Thanks for the invitation.”

“Can you please pass on mine & my daughter's thanks to all those involved in arranging the taster day. It was a truly fantastic day today. She hasn't stopped talking about her experiences today and has her heart set on a place at your school.”

“Just to say thank you to all those involved in organising Friday. It must have been a huge amount of work. My son had a brilliant day and hopefully is motivated to keep working hard for September.”
