Most pupils enter at Nursery, and then progress through to Reception or as the children call it 'Big School'. Some pupils also join us at Reception and pupils are welcome at any age dependent on a place being available, although places in other years are limited and in years where there is no place available we operate waiting groups.
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 Nursery and Reception Open Evening, which prospective parents and pupils are most welcome to attend. A meeting with Mr Robert Duigan, the Headmaster, is also a key part of the admissions process.
"I would like to say a big thank you to you and all the staff there. Having moved schools my son started at Crackley unsure of himself and his abilities. In a year he has made tremendous improvement, both academically and personally and his confidence has gone through the roof. Most importantly he is happy and wants to come to school everyday and try his best. I couldn't ask for anything more. This is down to all of you and his classmates."
Our Registrar, Mrs Jenny Vaughan will be pleased to talk you through the admissions process and current availability, contact her on 01926 514410 or email email@example.com.
