Message from the Head Teacher

Thank you for visiting our school website, my name is Tony Bowles and I have proudly held the position of Headteacher at Crestwood school since 2012, joining the school as deputy in 2010. Over the past 8 years the school has been on an incredible journey, and the best news is….we feel we have only just begun!

Our goal is to become an outstanding school in all areas and our achievements so far indicate that we are on the right track.

In over 2 decades of working in education I can honestly say I have never worked with such an enthusiastic, innovative, and hardworking team of teachers and support staff.

This creates an environment that our students can thrive in. Our results speak for themselves and in 2018 OFSTED graded our school GOOD with OUTSTANDING Features. We have also received national recognition for the progress we make with our students, twice rated in the top 20% nationally for value added, this is now the headline figure that the Department for Education will be using to measure schools, putting us way ahead of the game!

We are a founder member of the Invictus Education Trust, our forward thinking approach to the academy programme has seen us secure over £4 million worth of funding to improve our school in the last 2 years alone! This means our ambition for providing our students with a world class environment to learn in are beginning to be realised. We now boast a floodlit, state of the art 4G sports pitch, a newly refurbished swimming pool, 6 science labs, countless computer suites, 3 whole year groups with access to iPads and Apple TV installed in every classroom.

Anyhow, that’s enough from me, I hope you find what you are looking for on our website today, and if not, please do not hesitate to call us with any questions.

T. Bowles
