About the School
Crosfields has an excellent record of academic success, with all Year 8 leavers gaining places at their senior schools of choice in recent years including a good number of scholars. Facilities are modern and of a very high standard. There is an indoor heated swimming pool, sports hall, theatre and music school and the classrooms are light and spacious. A new building, The Oaks, was opened in October 2007 and houses a state of the art IT suite, library and Design Technology department in addition to further senior classrooms while the Nursery opened in September 2008 in a spacious detached house within the grounds with bespoke garden and play areas.
Crosfields School aim to achieve a high standard of learning within a happy, caring and stimulating environment. The early years represent a crucial stage in a child’s education. We aim to develop the particular aptitudes of each child and help each fulfil their potential. We have high levels of expectation, and ensure that appropriate challenges across a wide curriculum base are set. We regularly appraise curriculum content and teaching methods to ensure a continued high quality of education.
Crosfields strive to encourage self confidence, independence, power of expression, an enthusiasm for learning and an appreciation of what can be achieved through hard work and self discipline. Above all it is important that pupils enjoy their time at Crosfields, develop a sense of responsibility and show consideration towards others.
