Our Ethos

The Cranleigh Family of Schools is committed to the provision of inspirational educational environments for children aged 7 to 18. Our mission is to challenge and inspire every one of our pupils by broadening their horizons, enriching their learning and supporting them throughout each step of their journey. Our pupils are expected to embrace the opportunities offered, in all aspects of school life, and to support each other. Our Schools aspire to provide a soul and spirit that inspires. Our Common Room is dedicated to helping our pupils to flourish, and achieve their current and future ambitions.

the insight to recognise their privilege and to shape the future culture of the world through lives of service and leadership

Cranleigh aims to provide young people with: the strength to succeed; the wisdom to make informed choices; resilience in the face of failure or difficulty; and the insight to recognise their privilege and to shape the future culture of the world through lives of service and leadership.

Arising from the school’s Christian heritage and cultural background, at the heart of a Cranleigh education are four central values of Service, Relationships, Leadership and Excellence.

Service

All in the community are encouraged to adopt an attitude of service to each other and the wider community.

Relationships

Strong relationships are fostered as a priority in a predominantly boarding community. Children flourish within safe, supportive environments.

Leadership

Openness, integrity and thoroughness are characteristic of everything we do. Cranleigh aspires to lead thinking and practice in holistic boarding education. Cranleighans will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to shape future culture.

Excellence

Cranleigh will strive for excellence in everything it does and aspires to be recongised both for its educational vision and for the personal qualities of Cranleighans.
