Welcome to St Crispin’s Independent School

Christmas Week:

We have an exciting Christmas Week planned for students and staff for the last week of term. Lessons will take on a ‘cross-curricular’ aspect, with learning looking at celebrations across the world, and from different religious and cultural heritage. We will be examining the cost of festive shopping, gaining history lessons from World War 1, performing in the school concert, donating to local causes, playing football re-enacting the Christmas Truce of 1914 (and much more besides!) and hopefully seeing a very, very special VIP visitor!

All parents (Foundation 2 – Year 11) are invited to the Christmas Concert on the 8th of December at St James the Greater on London road (2pm until 4.30pm). This venue is in walking distance of the school making collection and bus travel easier. You will be treated to performances from pupils, alongside gaining the opportunity to buy Christmas cards made by our amazing pupils. Don’t forget to wrap up warm and be prepared for an amazing Christmas week for all,  here at St. Crispin’s.

Anti-Bullying Week – 14th – 18th November:

Anti-Bullying week in an opportunity to shine the spotlight on bullying and encourage all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying. Lessons will be conducted in house during the course of this week. Students will participate in specially conducted lessons and activities.

 

The Apprentice comes to St Crispin’s school:

St Crispin’s school had an amazing visit from Frances Bishop from “The Apprentice” star visited on Monday 24th October at 3.30 pm. She gave us amazing insights into the world behind the Television show and what Lord Sugar “Alan” is really like.

Francis gave an outstanding talk on life and work, describing how hard she has to work in a day to run a successful business.  We look forward to her return after the series ends to see who won and get the real “gossip” on the other stars.

 

Curriculum updates:

This year, we have our expanded our team of highly skilled and dedicated staff, and are now able to offer a number of new subjects. St Crispin’s school is delighted to introduce Religious Studies (G.C.S.E.) Economics (G.C.S.E.) Computing (G.C.S.E.) and Mandarin (Year 3 – 11).

 

Rewards Trip:

At the end of this term we will hold our termly St Crispin’s Head’s Rewards Trip. Student’s who have demonstrated a positive work ethos or made exceptional progress will be nominated by staff. Our outing will be to the Leicester Roller Disco. This will be selected using the voice of the school council. We hope that students will work hard this term to make it even harder to choose the winners for the Autumn term (Friday 2nd December 2016).

 

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning:

We are pleased to announce that we have once more supported Macmillan, through our coffee morning on the 30th of September. This year’s event was thoroughly enjoyable and a lot of money was raised. This was in large part thanks to the amazing baking skills of a number of our parents, who demonstrated such irresistible culinary excellence that a number of staff and parents, just had to go back for one more slice! This year we  raised £190! Thank you so much for all you support, raising money for this worthy cause.

Over the years we have raised more than £9000 !!!!!!!!!!   Truly Amazing !!!!

 

The School Fete:

Thank you for all those that came to support our budding entrepreneurs. We had some fantastically creative stalls. It was so nice to see so many happy faces and to see the students having so much success with in the world of business. The students have decided to have bouldering / climbing grips in the playground with the money that was raised. A full breakdown of the funds raised will be posted in the website. Congratulations to all of our budding entrepreneurs, we thought you were amazing (thank you to our parents for their kindness, energy, enthusiasm and compassion.)

You raised £700!!!!  AMAZING !!!!!
