What The Good Schools Guide says..
A traditional prep school with an outdoorsy, sporty feel. Whilst it's co-ed, the boyish culture seems to dominate somewhat. Parents describe it as 'busy, robust and challenging' and those children who enjoy life here are energetic, sporty and have a sense of humour about 'banter' from other pupils and younger staff. Non-sporty or quiet bookish children may well find this whole active vibe just too much...
Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.
Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.
All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.
What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2008, Mr Michael Wilson BSc (50s). Raised in Africa, educated in Kenya and at Sherborne then Keele University. He started his teaching career in the early '80s at Cranleigh as a chemistry teacher and sports coach in the senior school. After a few years he returned to Africa, held teaching posts at a couple of schools in Nairobi and was a national and Davis Cup team tennis coach. The draw of Cranleigh pulled him back and over the next seven years he worked through deputy house master, head of sixth form girls and girls' housemaster. After short-lived posts in Thailand and at Bradfield he was back at Cranleigh as housemaster in the senior school again, 'brought back to help sort out boarding,' he tells us.

Special Education Needs
The Learning Support Department at Cranleigh Prep School deals with pupils who have a learning difficulty which in some way hinders their ability to learn fully in the main classroom. The aim of the department is to provide a safe learning environment for pupils to achieve their potential. We provide specialist tuition for pupils with dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. Support can be provided for pupils for whom English is a second language. We tailor our teaching to the pupil's specific learning difficulties. Every pupil has an individual educational plan or IEP made specifically to suit their needs. A multi-sensory approach to learning is taken with our students. The department offers specialist teacher assessments to identify pupils who may have a specific need. All teachers in the school are made aware of pupils receiving support and their needs. We can also recommend outside specialists such as educational psychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and opticians. All the teachers in the Learning Support Department are qualified special needs teachers. They all hold diplomas in SpLD. We also have a trained Phonographix tutor and Visualising & Verbalising tutor.
