What the school says...
Cranford House is a non-selective independent day school for girls aged 3-18 years and boys from 3-11 years. We have an excellent reputation for providing pupils with a balanced, all-round education within a warmly nurturing environment. Set in over 14 acres of rural South Oxfordshire, our aim is to encourage pupils to achieve their full potential, becoming motivated, confident and happy individuals, recognising the importance of respect and support for others, but ready to seize life's opportunities.
The Junior School balances traditional academic skills with the enquiry-based approach of Science, Design Technology and Computing. Juniors benefit from Senior School facilities. Lesson content is based on the National Curriculum but is supplemented to ensure pupils develop their own collaborative, reflective and reasoning skills and abilities. Our results are consistently very good. Responsibility is offered at a young age through posts such as Junior Head Girl and team captains.
In our all-girls Senior School, pupils follow a common core curriculum, before choosing their GCSE subjects. Despite our non-selective status, the academic ambition we foster in our pupils has led to Cranford House being ranked in the Top 5 schools in Oxfordshire for our GCSE results. What's more, we are the only non-selective school within that Top 5.
Our girls belong to a House system and, on reaching Year 11, enjoy further positions of responsibility and privilege. At the end of Year 11, girls currently go on to a range of well-respected Sixth Forms. However, we are delighted that we will be opening our own on-site Sixth Form in 2020, complete with bespoke Sixth Form building, lab and study rooms.
The school has extensive games fields, a brand new Sports Hall, a swimming pool and an all-season astroturf. Dramatic, musical and dance productions are an important aspect of school life and our emphasis is very much on both inclusivity and the celebration of excellence. Our superb extra-curricular provision delivers a wealth of enriching opportunities to students right across the school and pupils have the opportunity to join educational trips, expeditions and excursions. Our own School Minibus service operates over a wide area.
Scholarships and Bursaries are offered for Year 7 entry to the Senior School - please see our website for more details. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
The Learning Support Department at Cranford House believes that every child is unique and has the potential to succeed whatever their individual strengths and difficulties. Those children who are not succeeding to their full potential are identified at an early age wherever possible and appropriate support or provision is put in place. Most of this support is within the classroom through teacher awareness, differentiation, use of specialist resources and support from a teaching assistant. This enables the school to be as inclusive as possible. A graduated level of provision is offered when needed through the different Waves of Intervention model. This provision and our pupils' progress are monitored and tracked carefully on a termly basis. All pupils with additional needs have an individual Provision Map which details their needs and ways to support them. This ensures all staff are aware of individual requirements and can implement any provision necessary. Pupils are taught using multi-sensory strategies and are encouraged to be confident and independent learners.
