ADMISSIONS PROCESS

STAGE 1 – VISITS

A limited number of places are available to pupils who are likely to achieve strong results in their GCSE examinations. Entry is competitive and successful candidates are likely to be predicted 7-9 grades at GCSE or IGCSE. If you do not already know Cranleigh, we strongly recommend you look at our virtual tour and our virtual Sixth Form A Level Options Evening will take place on 29 September.

The Sixth Form Options Evening provides families with the opportunity to hear about the curriculum, co-curricular activities and future plans for the School. There will also be the chance to virtually meet the Headmaster, Director of Studies and House staff.

Please e-mail admissions@cranleigh.org if you wish to book a visit and tour our beautiful campus during the summer holidays or in September. Booking is essential as slots will be limited and social distancing will apply.

A pack of materials is available to download after a few short questions and we’ll be happy to keep you updated with School news.  Please click here if you have any questions or would like to book a chat with our Head of Admissions, Mr Steve Batchelor.

 

STAGE 2 – REGISTERING

Candidates must be over 15 and under 17 years of age on the 1st of September in their year of entry to the School.

STAGE 3 – HOLISTIC REVIEW

Assessment for Sixth Form places consists of the requisite predicted results at GCSE and a satisfactory report from the candidate’s current school. Registered candidates will be invited to attend an interview and assessment in November of Year 11.
