Year 5 Enjoy A Taste Of Life At Senior School
Year 5 pupils visited Princethorpe College on Thursday 19 May, to take part in a special Crescent School only taster day.
It was an early opportunity for them to experience life at the Foundation’s senior school and start to become familiar with the bigger school environment, helping to make the move to secondary school a less daunting experience.
Pupils took part in lessons in Science, History, Business Studies, Maths and Textiles. They also had a walk around the school buildings and grounds, enjoyed a legendary Princethorpe cookie, spotted old Crescent friends now at Princethorpe, took lunch in the Refectory and participated in other activities including a Q&A with the prefects. At the end of the day they had the chance to familiarise themselves with the CEM tests used on entrance examinations day.
Their parents were invited to Princethorpe too, to meet members of the Senior Leadership Team.
Parents are reminded that Crescent School children are not automatically entered for Princethorpe’s Entrance Examinations. Those wishing to apply for September 2023 entry must complete a registration form by Friday 30 September at the latest, with the Entrance Examinations then taking place on Saturday 5 November.
