Head of Cranleigh Giving
Mrs Susannah Schofield is Head of Cranleigh Giving, the platform which invites members of Cranleigh School and Cranleigh Preparatory School to support our community and beyond, be it through gifts of time, expertise or money. Mrs Schofield joined Cranleigh in 2018 having previously worked in alumni relations, community engagement and fundraising in the independent school sector for over 10 years.
Mrs Schofield is chair of trustees for the John Schofield Trust, a charity she began in 1996 to set up the Young Talent of the Year award with the Royal Television Society (RTS). Since 2012, the Trust has run a mentoring scheme to nurture young journalists and to unlock social mobility within newsrooms. In 2018, the Trust launched an e-mentoring scheme for year 12 students who live and/or study in disadvantaged areas who are interested in a career in the media. In 2013, Mrs Schofield was given the RTS’s prestigious Judges’ Award in recognition of her work.
