What The Good Schools Guide says..
‘We have to play big schools to get all our teams matches’ the deputy head told us. He added, ‘Sport here is about participation, not just about the elite. Everyone is expected to be involved, staff as well as pupils.’ ... Very much a local (home counties and London) boarding school – nearly all parents live within a two hour drive and matches, plays and concerts are very well supported as a consequence.
What the school says...
Cranleigh is a leading co-educational weekly boarding and day school set in a stunning rural location in more than 280 acres on the edge of the Surrey Hills.
Cranleigh’s beautiful campus is exceptionally well equipped, with outstanding classroom, studio, performance and sports facilities, including three theatres, twelve rehearsal and performance spaces, competition pitches, stables, sports centres, golf course, outdoor education centre and swimming pool.
There are strong links between the School and nearby Cranleigh Preparatory School and pupils also join from a wide variety of other prep schools across London and the home counties, creating a lively, House-based community of young people who are drawn together by their inherent love of life and getting involved in everything Cranleigh has to offer. ...Read more
