Historic grammar plans to open feeder primary in heart of Gloucester

One of Gloucestershire’s most popular secondary schools has launched plans to open a new, feeder primary school.

The Crypt School in Gloucester has announced plans to create a primary school, linked to the secondary school, in Podsmead.

(If you haven’t already)  On 25th June 2018 the School’s Founders’ Day Service will be held in the Cathedral.

In the morning the annual Old Cryptians’ Golf Match will be held at the scenic Rodway Hill Course at Highnam.  Eric Stevens invites entries from Old Cryptians and guests.

In the evening the Founders’ Day Supper will be held in the Parliament rooms next to the Cathedral. 

Further notices of these events will be published soon.  Why not spend the whole day with Cryptians young and old?
