Junior 5 Enjoy A Taste Of Life At Senior School
Junior 5 pupils enjoyed a day at Princethorpe College on Tuesday 17 May, when they took part in a special Crackley Hall only taster day.
It was an early opportunity for them to experience life at the Foundation’s senior school, and start to become familiar with the bigger school environment, helping to make their imminent move to secondary school a less daunting experience.
Depending on their group, pupils participated in lessons in Maths, English, Science, Games, Music and Drama. They also had a walk around the school buildings and grounds, enjoyed a legendary Princethorpe cookie, spotted old Crackley friends now at Princethorpe, took lunch in the Refectory and participated in other activities including a Q&A with the prefects. At the end of the day they had the chance to familiarise themselves with the CEM tests that will be used on entrance examinations day.
Their parents were invited to Princethorpe too, to meet members of the Senior Leadership Team at the end of the day.
Parents are reminded that Crackley Hall children are not automatically entered for Princethorpe’s Entrance Examinations. Those wishing to apply for September 2023 entry must complete a registration form by Friday 30 September at the latest, with the Entrance Examinations then taking place on Saturday 5 November.
