House Activities

Cranleighans participate at the highest levels across all disciplines, and in many sports take the opportunity to represent the county or even their national side. But the School also works hard to recognise and reward the achievements of every individual pupil, to continually recognise the pupils who put their heart into every match, performance and examination, at every level of achievement.

House life is geared towards supporting that recognition, and to providing additional opportunities for pupils with every level of ability to take part in plays, shows and events, which contributes to a lively and stimulating boarding environment and often builds the confidence that enables pupils to achieve in other areas of School life.

In addition to the list of house competitions which appears below, each house also writes, directs and performs in its own dramatic production every year, and takes part in music evenings annually. Individual houses also take part in themed evenings and charity days.

In the list of house sporting events below, current holders of each cup and competition are shown.
