The Crescent

The Crescent

Crestwood’s building is a remarkable piece of architecture and won several awards after it opened in 1982. The concept was that of a “street” which centralises a community. Over the years and as the School has grown there have been additions but the community, family feel remains. The crescent forms the central thoroughfare to the School. All classrooms radiate from this.

We have much to be proud of. The number of students achieving high grade passes exceeds the targets set. Every year we look set to achieve more and we are a school that adds significant value. We care about all our students and ensure they make progress regardless of their starting points. Each child has a different journey to success and it is our job to help them achieve their potential. Our success has been built upon the foundation of the performances in the core subjects, as well as our Arts, Languages, Humanities and PE areas.

We have gained a justifiable reputation for excellent work in the Specific Learning Difficulties Resourced Base, which addresses the needs of students with dyslexia. Many of those students gain 5 or more higher grade GCSEs after following tailored learning interventions, one to one and whole class teaching.
