The Crescent School is an independent preparatory co-educational day school for pupils aged 4 to 11 years. Tailoring learning to individual needs, we support all our pupils to achieve great things in a happy and caring environment.
Originally founded in 1948 (having informally started in 1946) as a school for the children of Rugby School masters, it was housed in Rugby School buildings. Having opened its doors to children living in Rugby and the surrounding district, it outgrew its premises and, in 1988, purchased a purpose built school in Bilton, a leafy, residential suburb approximately 2 miles south of Rugby town centre.
Crescent School is the only independent primary school in Rugby, serving families from Warwickshire and Northamptonshire, specialising in preparing children for entry to senior schools, both state maintained and independent, at the age of 11 years.
In September 2016, the Crescent School merged with the Princethorpe Foundation. The Princethorpe Foundation is formed of three schools; Princethorpe College, Crackley Hall (including Little Crackers Nursery) and Crescent School. We share the same ethos, resources and love of learning.
"The first thing that strikes visitors to our school is the special sense of purpose that there is here combined with a genuinely caring and nurturing atmosphere. Every child here is unique and everyone has their place in our shared community.
If you entrust your child to our care we will nurture him/her as an individual as all the children learn about themselves, the world around them and their places in it. That nurturing, allied to good teaching, will enable your child to develop a ‘can do’ attitude and to recognise that learning can be a lot of fun!"
our school promise
As a school community, Crescent School shares certain core values and beliefs. We seek to foster and develop the qualities of kindness, tolerance and mutual respect in a safe and caring environment, where staff and families work together to deliver an inspiring, challenging and varied curriculum.
Our shared values are expressed in the Crescent School Promise:

The mission of Crescent School is to provide an outstanding all round education for its pupils. To achieve this goal we strive to create an environment that is caring, nurturing, and supportive of the needs and interests of every child and with an awareness of our place in the wider community. We are a school with Christian values and traditions and also welcome children of different faiths and those of no faith.
