Cranmore School to become fully co-educational

PUBLISHED: 16:13 22 March 2016


At Cranmore School we care passionately about education in its fullest sense

We want children to have a positive school experience in which they develop a love for learning as well as developing strong friendships. Cranmore enjoys a remarkable reputation as one of Surrey’s leading prep schools and announced that it will become fully co-educational in planned phases. By September 2016, there will be girls and boys throughout our Bright Stars Nursery and Junior Department.

Headmaster, Michael Connolly, commented: “We are implementing this change from a position of strength. Increasingly parents want their sons and daughters to be educated together and we feel sure that Cranmore is well placed to deliver an outstanding education for both boys and girls. The school has an impressive academic record underpinned by strong pastoral care.”

Cranmore has been commended for its academic reputation, excellent facilities and high quality music and sport.


At Cranmore we believe passionately in our responsibility to assist each child acquire the knowledge, skills and attitude which will provide a secure foundation in their education. We appreciate fully our shared responsibility with you in developing your child’s academic, physical, creative and emotional needs. We provide a stimulating, happy and fulfilling environment; the ability to be tolerant of others, to find great friendships in life and to take one’s rightful place in the world.

Cranmore understands how children learn. This understanding shapes our approach and has significant impact on all aspects of school life. We are fully committed to providing a strong co-educational environment in which girls and boys can work co-operatively and learn effectively together.

The academic life of Cranmore is its central core. Learning is designed to be stimulating, challenging and enjoyable; to encourage self-belief and to allow each individual child to attain the highest standard possible. To maintain and build upon our proven record of success, we provide an exceptional team of highly-qualified, committed and enthusiastic teachers, who understand and appreciate how children learn best.


Cranmore was awarded the top grade in every category for its most recent inspection: “The pupils’ achievements are excellent.” and “The pupils’ personal development is supported by excellent pastoral care.” There is a very broad curriculum. Pupils study both modern and classical languages: French, Spanish, Mandarin, Latin and Greek. As you would expect for a leading school, Maths, English and Science are very strong with the latter being taught as Physics, Chemistry and Biology from Year 6 onwards. The sporting opportunities are phenomenal as the school has its own extensive playing fields, swimming pool, gymnasium with climbing wall and a sports hall which incorporates a fitness centre and several squash courts. Children can pursue all the major sports but also do rowing, skiing or even golf.

Younger pupils, including those in the Nursery (Bright Stars at Cranmore), receive an excellent start which includes access to a fantastic Forest School with bespoke log cabin. In addition to the Nursery, the main entry points are for Reception (4+) and Year 3 (7+).
