Head PhotoSt Crispin’s School is a mainstream, independent, co-educational school situated in Stoneygate in Leicester, it is a convenient distance for Leicester City Centre and Leicester Central Train Station. St Crispin’s accommodates children that are both gifted and talented and dyslexic. We were rated ‘good’ on our last Ofsted report October 2006 and were awarded an exceptional Foundation Stage Profile Analysis for our Early Years Department from Leicester City Council. We offer a Breakfast Club from 8am, aftercare and Prep until 5.10pm, enabling pupils to finish homework under supervision.

We are the only school in Leicestershire that has been approved by The Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexia as being recognised for our specialist teaching of dyslexic pupils (see CReSTeD website for more information and advice: www.crested.co.uk). At St Crispin’s we try to develop children’s strengths in order that they may perform to their full potential and we adopt a sympathetic approach to teaching children with Dyslexia. Individual support is provided in our small classes and additional lessons, screening tests and assessment tests can also be arranged in-house at an extra charge.

We follow the National Curriculum from Foundation Profile to GCSE. We teach a wide variety of GCSEs, which include Languages, Arts, Arabic, ICT, Music, Dance. We also enter pupils into national examinations for Speech, Drama and Dance. Sport is an important part of school life and we swim every week and enjoy a full and varied sporting programme. Sporting success has seen one of our pupils play American Football for Great Britain. We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and pupils may enjoy Arabic; Chinese; Ballet; Dance; Drums; Choir; Guitar; Keyboard; Punjabi; Singing; Strings and Tennis. Recent outings included a trip to Stratford upon Avon to view Shakespeare’s birthplace and visit to the Theatre and guest speakers have included the RAF with a ‘Personal Development’ session.

Admission all year subject to places, by SATs results, school reference and interview with the Head. An Entrance Assessment Day for admission in September for pupils aged over seven takes place throughout the year.
