School Life

Daily life at Crackley Hall is immensely rich and varied. As well as offering a stimulating and well resourced curriculum, a glance at our termly calendar shows the wealth of trips, visits and fixtures pupils are involved with as well as the activities on offer at lunchtime and after school.

The school day is divided into six teaching periods, beginning at 8.25am, but to help busy mums and dads we are open from 7.45am until 6.00pm.  Many children stay on after school for homework, clubs or sporting activities.

Children are allocated into one of four houses and can earn points during the year for their house team. Points are awarded for good work and effort in the classroom and neat or improved work. 

We have a range of inter-house competitions during the year including Sports Day and other house events for sport, drama, art and music.

Our houses are named after the planets, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn and Venus and a keen sense of collegiality and competition is encouraged and engendered. 



A wide range of healthy food options, cooked daily on the premises, is offered by Mr Sansum and the Holroyd Howe team. Menus include traditional favourites such as Shepherd's Pie, Pasta and Curry. Lunchtimes are staggered to allow the very little ones to eat slightly earlier.

Menus are sent to parents at the end of each term. Food is available for break, lunch and after school. Pupils can also bring in their own packed lunches if they prefer. Milk and water are provided for the children to drink.

Good table manners are expected of all pupils, as well as conversation.

Menus are available from the school office
