The Old Cranleighan Society exists to provide a lifelong connection between Cranleighans and Cranleigh. The Society provides a wide ranging package of support and benefits including careers advice, business networking and mentoring, reunion events, sports clubs and publications.
The Old Cranleighan Society Network offers all former students advice and mentoring throughout university, into graduate recruitment and career development right through to potential career change in later life.
The OC office also helps to coordinate more than a dozen reunions every year. These range from a golf day at the School to a reunion for the most recent leavers centred around the Gower Club match on Bluetts to an outing for OCs who were in the armed forces to a dinner for OCs living in Australia. There is an annual dinner or drinks event most years, while Vickie Ingle, the full-time OC manager, is also available to help individual OCs run more targeted events, including decade reunions every year at the School on Speech Day.
The Old Cranleighan Society operates a full-time sports club based at Thames Ditton with three rugby and 15 hockey sides. There are also teams for cricket, golf, tennis, shooting and netball. The Society encourages groups with similar interests to link up and this has resulted in a variety of societies that bring together like-minded OCs. These are not only enjoyable social occasions but also aim to help younger OCs who are starting out in their careers. At present these societies cover the City, law, shipping, media, surveyors and adventurers, with more in the pipeline.
