The gift of

#theadventure

An independent co-educational day school for children from 3 to 11 years old, situated in a beautiful, 30-acre site on the outskirts of Stratford upon Avon.

Friendship & Trust

We are trustworthy and honest to create strong friendships.

The Croft School was originally established in the Old Town of Stratford upon Avon in 1933. Purchased by the Thornton family in 1981, the school was moved to its present location, a beautiful 30-acre site on the outskirts of the town, five years later. A family-based, co-educational school for children from 3 to 11 years of age, our vibrant, forward-thinking school, based on traditional values, enjoys small class sizes of up to 20 pupils.

Respect

We are kind and respectful to everyone and look after our school environment.

At the heart of everything the children do each day, are the school’s six Core Values; Friendship & Trust, Respect, Resilience, Growth Mindset, Creativity, and Excellence. These values are examined and demonstrated in so many ways: in assemblies; PSHE lessons; throughout the academic, musical and sporting curriculum; and during Form time.

Creativity

We use our imagination to solve problems in new and exciting ways.

Self-expression and creativity are encouraged at every stage of our children’s development, and The Croft’s beautiful setting provides them with space to learn, explore, and play.

Growth Mindset

We believe that we can ‘grow’ our talents and abilities with hard work, perseverance and learning from our mistakes.

The Croft offers its pupils a diverse range of opportunities within both a broad, balanced curriculum, and a varied programme of extracurricular activities, enabling them to discover new interests and talents, and flourish.

Excellence

We always give our very best to achieve excellence in everything that we do.

Here, at The Croft, we seek to stimulate the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of all the children, challenging them to fulfil their potential. In order to achieve this, our curriculum, the foundation for their learning, must excite, energise and educate in equal measure, whilst preparing them for an ever changing 21st Century.

Resilience

We use a positive approach when things are challenging; we never give up!

From performing in the Pre-school Nativity plays to the Year 6 Summer Play, building shelters in Early Years Forest School to rafts on the Year 6 PGL trip, entering the Thornton Scholarship Examination in Year 2 to the 11+ and secondary school examinations in Year 6, Croft pupils draw on their reserves of resilience.
