What says..

Sport is the 'wow' factor which attracts lively, active types to Cranmore. The facilities are 'amazing' and coaching is 'totally professional' with a 'squeaky clean sporting ethos'. Catholic ethos runs through the school; head explains: 'It's a Catholic community and everyone does everything, it's fundamental to the school. If you want to come to Cranmore you accept this'.  Discipline is about learning and moving on with 'no labels for bad children'; the aim is to educate children to make the right choices via drip feed over a long period...

What the school says...

Cranmore has an impressive academic record underpinned by strong pastoral care. Each individual matters and we want the very best for all our pupils so that they develop a love for learning and make strong friendships. Pupils are encouraged to follow their own interests and develop to the best of their abilities. Academic life is strong with pupils going onto the region's leading senior schools and many scholarships awarded each year. Whilst academic excellence is vitally important, we also enjoy an outstanding reputation for our Sport, Music and exceptional extra-curricular programme.
The presence of girls in our Bright Stars Nursery has been a tremendous success and we extended this provision a few years ago. We are committed to becoming fully co-educational and are doing so in planned phases. From September 2018, we have girls throughout our Bright Stars Nursery and Junior Department, including Year 3.

Cranmore's most recent ISI Report (May 2013) confirms the school's status as one of the region's leading prep schools. The Report awards Cranmore an impressive set of 'Excellents' across the board. The Nursery, Bright Stars at Cranmore for girls & boys aged 2 to 4 years, was awarded a corresponding grade of 'Outstanding' in the recent Inspection.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

Since 2006, Mr Michael Connolly BSc BA MA MEd (50s). Scottish, quietly confident, straight bat, no nonsense. Years of experience as teacher, housemaster and head in a number of HMC senior and prep schools. He keeps active with squash, tennis and dog walking; reads something philosophical or theological most days (his arts subjects) and enjoys a broad musical taste. Mrs Connolly is a qualified teacher who also works in the school in the marketing department and shows prospective parents around. They have three sons, all in their 20s.

Parents tell us he was initially single minded in developing Cranmore; subsequently he has consulted and communicated with pupils and parents, taking account of their opinions; ultimately he knows where he is taking the school. Thoughtful and considered, he tackles difficult topics...
