Something people don't know about you: “I worked as a zookeeper at London Zoo when I was 16. I do not recommend your back being licked by a giraffe when you are trying to feed it.”

“The warmth and inclusiveness of our family atmosphere comes from a boarding school which is large enough for diverse opportunities and small enough for everyone to be known, supported and encouraged. Our guiding values and principles are summarised in four words: service, relationships, leadership and excellence.”

Martin Reader

What makes us different

*Shortlisted for Boarding School of the Year in the TES Independent School Awards 2019*

“The School is highly successful in meeting its aim of enabling young people to flourish and lead busy and fulfilled lives” – ISI

In 2017-18 we enjoyed the most successful results in our 150-year history, both academically and across an impressive range of sports, arts and cultural activities. Such broad success is even more remarkable in view of the School’s size (628 pupils aged 13 to 18) and entry criteria (based on a holistic review rather than narrow academic selection, and with a robust sibling priority). We firmly believe that this success, and the evident happiness and enjoyment of our pupils, is firmly grounded in our dedicated boarding environment. The real magic of Cranleigh comes not from the stellar performance but the teamwork and community spirit that enables them and for each child that succeeds or betters expectations at whatever level.
