Message from the Headmaster – Mr. Nicholas Dyer

I am delighted that you are considering a role here at The Crypt School. I hope that you find this information helpful, and we look forward to receiving your application.

The School is located just outside of the City of Gloucester in the West of England. Gloucester is known for its 11th century Cathedral and close; for Blackfriars, which is a stunning example of a 13th century medieval priory site; the British Waterways Museum, which celebrates the city’s industrial past, and now the vibrant Gloucester Quays, which has a selection of shops and restaurants. Gloucester is a vibrant and growing city, and the School is conveniently located close to the City, and close to good road and rail links to Cheltenham and the surrounding region, including Bristol for example.

Founded in 1539, The Crypt School’s vision is derived from its Latin motto “Floreat Schola Cryptiensis”: floreat means “to flourish” and at The Crypt we wish all our pupils and our young adults in the sixth form, as well as our staff, to flourish in all that they do.

We are a vibrant selective school, a place where learning is valued for its own sake within an environment of strong pastoral care. At the centre of our school life, is a powerful sense of community, where pupils are supported and encouraged to learn and engage with each other. Confident, friendly and respectful, the high quality of our pupils’ personal development is remarkable and is one of the greatest strengths of the School.

We recognise the time and thought that goes into an application and we will certainly give yours our serious consideration.

If you have any further questions or wish to visit the School prior to sending in an application, please contact Sharon Bailey via who will be able to assist you.

With best wishes
Nicholas Dyer
