The Good Schools Guide

Start exploring

A community to support you in discovering your talent

Cranleigh is Surrey’s leading co-educational independent school, offering boarding and day education for pupils aged 13 to 18. We provide a breathtaking range of opportunities in a school small enough for everyone to know and support one another.

Our ethos

A place that feels like home, where everyone is involved

Although we welcome both boarding and day pupils, our school is full boarding in spirit; day pupils are fully included in house life and contribute much to its vitality.


A classroom that encourages intellectual curiosity

Our examination achievements and university entrance figures continue to excel. Our distinctive approach to learning, Cranleigh Thinking, encourages all students to think in more depth than the exam syllabuses require.

Academic overview

A community that celebrates difference and supports one another to excel

But don’t just take our word for it, our Open Days are a great opportunity to see what makes Cranleigh so special. You will be able to meet pupils and teachers, see lessons in progress, explore our site and facilities and see why we believe that strength comes from culture.
