For parents of talented musical children, the quality, profile, opportunities and individual nurturing offered by the Music Department is a vital consideration in their choice of a senior school.

A school in which music thrives demonstrates not only its commitment to the development of pupils’ creativity but also to their cultural awareness and the fundamental life skills of self-discipline and teamwork which musical activity brings.

At Cranleigh we are passionate about the importance of music in the development of well-rounded individuals, but not to the exclusion of all else. You will find Cranleighans developing their musical talents alongside a well-balanced academic curriculum and a wide range of other creative and sporting activities. Every pupil is offered a vast number of musical opportunities to fulfil his or her individual potential, whether that may be participation in a large choir, in a rock band, or as a soloist with a professional symphony orchestra.




I am always delighted to meet keen musicians and potential music scholars for an informal pre-audition at any time of the year.

Do read the tabs above regarding musical life at Cranleigh, and better still come and see us. There is a “sign up” form on the right hand side of this page if you would like to be added to our regular newsletter detailing forthcoming events and reviews.

I hope you will see that music lies at the very heart of Cranleigh, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
