If you have any enquires please email Michael Brewis at mbrewis@crypt.gloucs.sch.uk OR phone the school office and ask to be put through to the IT Department.

The Crypt School is pleased to offer parents of students in year 7 & 8 the option to opt into our iPad Scheme. This scheme allows students to use an iPad during the school day to enhance their learning and develop their academic ability. All staff also have been issued an iPad and have embedded them into their lessons, to make them more engaging and interactive. 

We have chosen the iPad based on three main reasons:

Personalised Learning:

It is proven that the use of an iPad in the classroom allows a lesson to become personalised based on the students ability and needs. Students are also able to work at their own pace and review notes they make in lessons at home – without having the extra weight of exercise books.

Enhanced Engagement:

The iPads allow our lessons to become more interactive, allowing every student, ether confident or not, to participate in a lesson and engage into class discussions.

Prepared for future careers:

According to surveys done by Open Colleges, 86% of students believe that tablets can help them study more effectively.

The use of technology in the classroom, allows students to learn fundamental IT skills that are now compulsory when searching for early employment.


All Year 7 iPads are provided by Western Computer and are covered by 2 years insurance. Please click on the link below and fill in the claim form. And hand the device in to IT Services at school.


Please note that for the first claim no excess is required, however subsequent claims are charged at £50. 

Students who are in year 8 (September 2017 entry) will need to collect an insurance forum from IT Services (Due to a different insurance company being used). 

*Please note: MendIT, CPU Claims and The Crypt School reserve the right to refuse any insurance claims.*
