At The Crest Academy, we pride ourselves on the high levels of academic success and the wide range of extra curricular activities available to our students.

We understand that our students get one opportunity at secondary education and we work tirelessly to ensure that every single student achieves the highest levels of academic success and aspires for excellence in everything they do. We have a comprehensive and successful transition programme with our local primary schools to ensure that all new Year 7 students have a smooth move to secondary school. For external students applying to our Sixth Form we have an induction programme to guarantee that their start to life in our Sixth Form is successful.

I hope that you have had the opportunity to look around our website to give you a flavour of everything that goes on in the school. I also hope that you have visited the school as it is only by walking around the site and seeing the work that goes in the school every day,that you will truly get a full picture of the great school we are.

If you would like a tour of the school please contact Ms Carole McWhinney on 020 8452 4842
