Academic

We pride ourselves on a curriculum that not only enables our pupils to achieve exceptionally good examination results but also engages them in the excitement of learning, and prepares them for the wider world. Cranleighans grow up to be independent, thoughtful and ‘well-rounded’, confident in their ability to question, analyse and express opinions.

Our aim is to strike a balance between the academic disciplines and the wealth of extra-curricular activities on offer. We seek all-round excellence and share the same general aims as Cranleigh School.

A culture of thoughtful learning underpins every aspect of the rich academic life at Cranleigh. Our curriculum, delivered through inspirational teaching, seeks to promote a genuine excitement for the learning process and a passion within each pupil for academic success.

The curriculum is broad and balanced. It encourages and entices children to explore their intellectual, technical, creative and physical selves. Our pupils study English, Mathematics, Science, French, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Art, Music, Design, Food Technology, Computing, Learning for Life and Drama. Most of the pupils also learn Latin from Form 4 (National Curriculum year 6) onwards and younger pupils also enjoy P.E. and Dance.

Diagnostic testing and academic support is on hand through our Learning Support Department, comprising fully qualified staff, able to help with a wide range of specific learning difficulties. All pupils are taught Study Skills and those who have been identified as able, gifted or talented are given the appropriate support to help them fulfil their potential.

The combination of a challenging curriculum, inspirational teaching, sensitive and accurate monitoring and reporting of progress and an excellent physical environment ensures a vibrant learning community.
