  • James Collins

    James Collins

    I have been a Governor at The Crescent before the school actually opened. Initially I volunteered as I attended Selhurst High School For Boys (many years ago) and wanted to see the building brought back to life - I am pleased to say it looks as impressive now as when refurbished 7 years ago and makes a fine environment for a Primary School. I have lived in Croydon for 45 years and have a 15 year old daughter who has just sat the new style GCSE’s and extensive Governor experience both at other Croydon Schools (Primary & Secondary) and for 6 years sat on Croydon Councils Education Scrutiny Committee. I passionately believe all children should get the chance of the best possible education.
