Cranleigh School

Our view

The vision at thriving co-ed Cranleigh, with its stunning 240-acre campus in leafy Surrey, has always been to provide a broad education for local children. This means a marked effort by head Martin Reader (previously at Wellington before taking up the post in 2014) to embrace a curriculum that puts equal emphasis on heavyweight subjects such as philosophy and science as it does on the creative and performing arts (the school motto reads ‘From Culture Comes Strength’).

The school hasn’t been shy of spending on upgrades in recent years, either – the latest opening was the van Hasselt Centre with sparkling new classrooms for business studies, English, geography, history and politics.

Numbers are maxed out at 700 – the most that will comfortably squeeze into the restored chapel. Around 70 per cent board, but most nip off home for Saturday nights; there are eight houses (the newest is Martlet, for girls, which opened in 2019), arranged in boy-girl pairs for competitions and socials.

Sporting glories come thick and fast in rugby (there are 10 grass pitches including an international standard 1st XV pitch), netball and hockey especially – but there is also an on-site nine-hole golf course and putting green, and an equestrian centre for riding lessons. And from local to global: the school is building on its success of Cranleigh Abu Dhabi with two new branches soon to open in China.
