The Crypt School was awarded Teaching School status in March 2013, being the first Teaching School in the county.

Teaching schools are part of the government’s drive to give schools more freedom and to enable schools to take increasing responsibility for managing the education system. Teaching schools give outstanding schools a leading role in the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and head teachers, as well as contributing to the raising of standards through school-to-school support.


If you would like any further information about the partnership or would like to join, please do get in touch.
