The Curriculum

A broad fourth form curriculum leads into an options system allowing ten GCSEs – the ‘core’ subjects, two to three sciences and three to four optional subjects. At sixth form pupils take A-levels with the option of adding EPQ and Pre-U. Classes are a good size (approx. ten in sixth form), and extra support is readily available.

Games & The Arts

Outstanding facilities include a huge sports centre, indoor pool, equestrian centre, astroturfs and a golf course. The music school features a wide range of instrumental and vocal ensembles and top-class practice/performance facilities; drama has its own modern theatre, while outdoor education, Duke of Edinburgh, CCF and canoeing are also popular. Cranleigh has enjoyed several recent National successes in these areas.

Pastoral Care

Cranleigh’s philosophy is to nurture pupils as individuals, ensuring happy and fulfilling school years while preparing them for the wider world. The housemasters/mistresses, matrons, personal tutors who closely follow their tutees’ progress, deputy heads and chaplain all play a key part in the pupils’ pastoral care.

University Places

Ninety-nine per cent go on to higher education, with around 80 per cent getting into their first-choice university (including Oxbridge, Bristol, Durham, LSE, UCL) in recent years.

Percentage of Oxbridge Candidates

Oxbridge is a focus for many of Cranleigh’s brighter pupils, with impressive results year on year.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Family values feature strongly at this ‘local boarding school’. A highly regarded school/home partnership enables pupils to remain close to family while participating fully in school life.

Outstanding Characteristics

The 280-acre setting and outstanding facilities offer an enviable environment in which to develop in both academic and co-curricular spheres. The school believes feeling valued within various spheres impacts positively on grades, and results in confident, open-minded individuals who leave with lifelong friends.
