Encouraging, supporting and challenging

Crosfields Senior School provides countless opportunities for all our students to build on the skills and experiences which they gained in their formative primary years.

We are proud of the achievements of our students and help every child to discover their strengths. Throughout the Senior School years, we work in partnership with you to nurture our students and feel privileged to play a role in enabling them to grow into young people who are well equipped to play productive roles in society.

Thoroughly, imaginatively and broadly

We encourage students, helping them to excel across all subjects and enabling them to gain the qualifications they need to move on to the next step…

Our highly qualified team of specialist teachers stretch and support our students throughout their Senior School years, from Year 7 through to the key GCSE Years 10 and 11. We’re proud of our strong track record of preparing students for some of the most academically demanding curricula, ensuring the perfect formula for academic excellence.

Making informed choices

As students embark on their Senior School education, their options broaden. They begin to have the chance to make informed choices about expanding their subject choices and selecting options to complement the core curriculum.

Thriving in a modern and inspiring environment, Crosfields offers exceptional facilities in our Senior School. Housed in our modern, architect designed (award winning) main building, which is flooded with light, we offer a plethora of benefits to inspire concentration and motivation.

Book a Tour

The Senior School library provides a large space for class and private study. Stocked with a wide variety of resources, our Librarian is on hand to advise what to choose next.

Facilities surround the main Performance Space, where school events are held and where the school gather to celebrate achievements and meet for Collect (what we call Assembly). Our Drama students, and all our other students who want to take part, can perform in our purpose-built Theatre . Sounds and tunes from a whole range of instruments can be heard throughout the day, emanating from the Crosfields Music School, next door.

The Senior School students have access to our well equipped Art and Pottery studios, CAD lab, Technology workshops and computer suites – all ready for your child to develop new skills.

Developing and nurturing a healthy mind, body and outlook

The café style dining in ‘The Hatch’ recognises that older children have different tastes, when it comes to school dinners. Our students were involved in creating the inspirational artwork around the walls and the banquet seating adds to the overall vibe, helping students to relax and refuel at key points in the day.

Breakfast is available to enjoy from 07:30. We appreciate that parents and carers have busy days ahead, so you can be assured that your children are having a great start to the day, whilst you can get on with yours.

There are 40 acres here for students to explore, offering the chance to breathe in fresh air, to help relax and rejuvenate between lessons.

At the heart of the school is The Hub, where our SENCOs provide specific and dedicated help for students with specific educational needs and disabilities.

Your child’s education is our priority and we work in partnership with you throughout their Senior School Years.

We continually observe, test and assess our students throughout the school year, enabling us to make sure they are reaching key milestones and to identify any issues. Tutors are on hand to answer any concerns you might have. We provide regular updates on individual progress and invite parents and guardians to discuss this at parent’s evenings.

What’s next? – help to choose the right Sixth Form

In Years 10 and 11 we’ll talk to each student about their aspirations and help them to identify their Sixth Form choices. This is an exciting time but can also be daunting. We’re here to provide advice and guidance.

Students in these year groups are pioneers, as Crosfields moves towards full capacity to aged 16. We are in the process of creating links with respected schools and colleges to help our students make the next step that’s right for each individual.
