Welcome from the Head
Cranbrook is a Selective State Day and Boarding School for girls & boys aged 13 – 18 years, with a long and distinguished history.
It is both an outstanding School (Ofsted: 2011) with excellent academic track record and an integral part of the life and culture of the town itself.
Headmaster - John Weeds
Our website provides an overview of the School and I hope that the energy and enthusiasm of staff and students alike comes clearly across. I would like to commend their outstanding achievements in recent times. We continue to perform well at GCSE and A-level and continue to strive for excellence in all that we do.
As a Grammar School, high achievement is central to our ethos. At the same time, we know that above-average exam results are only one element in a well-rounded education. It is pleasing that Ofsted recognised our excellence both inside the classroom and outside. We are convinced that the values underpinning our code of conduct and the rounded education we offer ensure that Cranbrook students are best placed to make a valuable contribution now and in the future.
The development of such values is intrinsic to life at Cranbrook. These are: care and consideration for those around us; self-awareness and self-confidence; a thirst for knowledge and learning; the discipline to work hard and develop resilience; and above all, the freedom to enjoy family, friends and all the opportunities that life can offer. This focus on well-being – be it spiritual, social, moral or emotional – is central to our approach and makes Cranbrook such a special place for all who live and work within it.
If you share such values, perhaps it’s the day or boarding school for you and your children?
We hope so and also hope that you will come and see us for yourself. Without doubt, a school visit is the best way to get to know us.
We look forward to welcoming you to Cranbrook soon.
All best wishes,
