Old Crescentians Celebrate School's 70th Anniversary

This year the Crescent School is celebrating its 70th anniversary and on Saturday 29 September 2018 the school marked its platinum anniversary with a special double celebration.

Many Old Princethorpians are also old pupils of the Foundation's junior school, the Crescent School.  This year the Crescent School is celebrating its 70th anniversary and on Saturday 29 September 2018 the school marked its platinum anniversary with a special double celebration.

In the afternoon past and present pupils, parents, staff and governors came together to mark the milestone at a community event at the school in Bilton, Rugby.  It was a very special occasion, enjoyed by everyone, that gave many the chance to reconnect and share fond memories.

In the evening the school hosted a Platinum Anniversary Dinner Dance at Princethorpe College.  It was a very convivial affair with some ninety guests associated with the Crescent treated to a delicious three-course meal, followed by speeches from past pupils from across the decades including combined OPs and OCs, Eddie Tolcher, Libby Williams and Laura Brazier, live music and dancing till midnight. It was a very successful day.

There are further events planned for this anniversary year.  They include an inaugural pub meet at the Merchant’s Inn in Rugby on Friday 23 November and a Carol Service on Monday 17 December in the Temple Speech Rooms at Rugby School, close to the Crescent’s first home at Horton Crescent.

Anyone who has a connection to the Crescent School who would like to share their memories and be kept up to date with news from the school can complete and return the form here or contact oldcrescentians@crescentschool.co.uk.

The school has set up a group on Facebook called ‘Old Crescentians’ and hopes that this will act as a means for past Crescent pupils to get in touch with each other, share memories and get news about their old school. The Facebook group can be found at:
