A little school with big ambitions.

The Crescent is a co-educational independent day school for children aged 4 to 11 years. Tailoring learning to individual needs, we support all our pupils to achieve great things in a happy and caring environment.

About the school

Crescent School is the only independent primary school in Rugby, serving families from Warwickshire and Northamptonshire, specialising in preparing children for entry to senior schools, both state maintained and independent, at the age of 11 years.

As a school community, Crescent School shares certain core values and beliefs. We seek to foster and develop the qualities of kindness, tolerance and mutual respect in a safe and caring environment, where staff and families work together to deliver an inspiring, challenging and varied curriculum.

We are one of the Princethorpe Foundation’s Junior Schools and share the same ethos, resources and love of learning.

Admissions Process

Most of our pupils enter at Reception and at Year 3, though pupils are welcome at any age dependent on a place being available. Places in other years are limited and in years where there are no places available we operate a waiting group.

A meeting with Mr Joe Thackway, the Headmaster, is a key part of the admissions process. We encourage prospective parents and pupils to visit us both formally and informally to get a true flavour of the school. We hold various open events throughout the year, including a specific Reception Open Evening in November, which prospective parents and pupils are most welcome to attend.

Our Registrar, Mrs Helen Morley will be pleased to talk you through the admissions process and current availability, contact her on 01788 523851 or email
