Admissions: Joining our School


At Crossdale, we greatly value the notion of the ‘Crossdale Family’, whereby all members of the school community are valued, supported and encouraged. We want parents and careers to feel involved in school life and children to feel happy, secure and safe. In our high-achieving school we put our success down to teamwork – children, parents, staff and governors working together to make sure that our school remains a positive place to be.

We pride ourselves on our friendly, lively and caring atmosphere where children grow and develop emotionally, socially and intellectually. We hope to develop a passion for learning in our children that will continue throughout their lives. 

Whether this is your first child potentially joining Crossdale, or you have had other children pass through our school, we know how important it is that you get all the information you need to prepare for school life. Hopefully, our website will answer your questions, but do not hesitate to contact us if you have anything you would like to ask or discuss.

We would love the opportunity to show you our school so get in touch if you would like to visit. Please let us know us if there are any adjustments we need to make to support you when you  visit us.

Kind regards,

Mr Cresswell

Admissions Appeals
