School to add extra class due to high demand from new housing

Rugby Editorial 22nd Feb, 2020   0

HIGH demand due to new house building has prompted a school to add a second reception class for September 2020.

The Crescent School is expanding because applications for reception this autumn quickly became oversubscribed.

The Bawnmore Road school normally limits places to 20 children each year – but with applications already well over that number, and with two Year 6 classes leaving this July, the school can offer a second reception class.

Headmaster Joe Thackway said: “We are seeing an enormous amount of new house building in Bilton and the surrounding area and hope that this extra provision will be well received.

“Having two classes of up to 20 pupils each will enable more pupils to benefit from our experienced early years team and specialist child-centred tailored approach.”

Parents are encouraged to register their interest as soon as possible. Contact school registrar Helen Morley on 01788 523851 or email [email protected] to register interest.

The school will hold an Open Morning on Saturday March 21 from 9.30am-12noon.
