The School takes pride in the fact that Cranleighans leave confident, self-motivated and invariably blessed with lifelong friend

It is set in over 240 acres by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet is only an hour from London, where its students regularly enjoy the Capital’s art, drama and other exhibitions. Cranleigh’s academic performance speaks for itself: 51% of all GCSE grades were either 9 or 8, and 9-7 was 73%. A Level results included 48% of grades at A*/A and 82% A*-B. It enjoys a consistently strong Oxbridge performance, and with nearly all pupils go on to University, with over 80% going to a Russell Group University.

It is also proud of its committed ‘all-round’ ethos to education. It boasts exceptional Sports facilities and staff, resulting in recent National Championship titles in hockey, riding and rugby. Multiple country and county pupil representations in rugby, hockey, cricket, netball and riding as well. The Music School offers an impressive range of instrumental/ vocal ensembles, while equally outstanding facilities for Drama result in “professional-level” productions, supported by a pupil-led technical crew. The Art department has a huge following, thanks to the comprehensive choice of disciplines available to pupils.

The Good Schools Guide describes Cranleigh as a “an all-rounder’s paradise, yes, but the academic offering can stand up to almost any school in the land.”
